I know. At the time it seemed nice for an experimental protocol
because we would be able to quickly add certain information to
existing messages.
Also, we thought we could re-use some code from the parsing of scene files.
Another idea was that it would be easy to debug with WireShark.

But parsing these XML-network-messages can be a pain-in-the-ass, as
Iain experiences right now ...

So yes, we would like to add many things to the SSR, but we don't have
time for most of it ...
