Summary0002688: We need some checksums for netpacks code
DescriptionCurrently we have versions for our saves serialization, but it's will be very helpful for multiplayer if every build would have checksum for all netpacks code. So server and client could verify they both have same netpacks format.

Of course we could just add one more magic constant and bump it every time we change netpacks, but I pretty sure some template magic could let us do that. Though it's have to be cross-platform and work with all used compilers and this is probably hard part.

We need to start incrementing SERIALIZATION_VERSION on each netpacks change, and allow connection only with same version.

I really dislike having to change it manually since there must be way to do that with templates.

I think that even if template method exists it would be very difficult to implement.

Isn't what we store with CTypeList sufficient to determine that protocol in sync?

No it is not sufficient. CTypeList only stores types of packets but not serialization format.
