Just a thought.

One thing I would be interested in seeing, if the protocol becomes more 
formalized, is a header format.  For example:

String Bytes	Description
8       	Length of Response
4		Myth Version
4       	Response Code - Maybe along the lines of HTTP/FTP
0..n		Response Specific Payload

This would be really useful if someone ever wanted to write a protocol 
decoder for ethereal.  Right now you have to watch both the command sent 
and the response to be able to decode the response, and know what 
version of mythtv it is you're trying to decode.
