arne_bab is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

It seems CyberBob is right on this one.

I don't know why, but it sneaked into our download code:

if ( candidate.isG2FeatureAdded() )
request.addHeader( new HTTPHeader( "X-Features",
"g2/1.0" ) );
But I have a clue, why it is in there: Shareaza did simply use the Gnutella download mechanism in the beginning and just added a header: "Are you a shareaza with G2? If not, then to hell with you! If yes, then please go on downloading. I'll be downloading from you in any case."

I don't know, if they still act that way.
