I was actually looking for the opposite.  If I upgrade my server to a 
version that includes the KeepAlive code, will old 0.09 clients work 
against this? Since they won't be sending KeepAlive requests, I'm just 
wondering if they can still be used.

I'm trying to find a good way to upgrade the system with geographically 
dispersed clients. So if I can run 'old' 0.09 clients (stock Box) 
against a server that supports KeepAlives, that would be helpful to me.

I understand that there may be other code changes that will cause 
incompatibility, but I don't know if that's the case. Hence my question.

Also, this question is not necessarily only related to 0.9-mod, but also 
to the efforts underway to get a new 'stock' Box.

Thanks in advance for any help,
