I think undocumented features are slowing down the further development, you'll find my argumentation in another thread:

I would be very happy about further information (any other known client adds proprietary information to the protocoll?) and serious discussions (technical and no emotional flames like xyz sucks plz). Thx!
You can find more information and discussions at the Gnutella Developer Forum (
