Basically we need a version tag on the server that says
the server supports version X (example "0.1Alpha") and
the clients will also have a tag w/ their version that
will be sent to the server upon connect. If the
versions dont match up the server will send back the
message telling the client to upgrade something like:

"You client is out of date - please visit oncemmorg.com
to upgrade your client".

With this then we can move the main server to version
0.2Alpha eventually and the old version people will not
be able to join - but to know to upgrade.
