it's  easy  for  he server to distinguish the version of the protocol,
cause  at  least SNAC 1,02 is different. ICQv8 is a superset of ICQv7,
but  some feature is duplicated with different SNACs, introduced by v8
(SNAC  family 13). So if you use v8 you'll use SNAC13 instead of SNAC9
for certain features.
