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.
