Whiteboard

With the current network code, this would be a hack. I suggest merging the branch anyway, but keeping string transfer to latin1; only with a new network message system, we can implement this in a compatible way.

The new protobuf code uses utf8 for strings, so we have our distinction right there. Protobuf capable peers get utf8 strings, other peers get latin1.
