client/server version compatability.

Hey Scott,
   The alpha clients should work with any version
of argus, so if your getting coredumps, do send
some description of what you did so I can fix it.

   With a filter fix that we made in Argus-2.0.2
there is a potential client incompatibility with
Argus-2.0.2 clients and earlier servers.  What will
happen is that the client will pass a filter that
the server cannot parse, and the server will close
the connection.

   Earlier clients will generate a syntax error
parsing the filter before sending it to the server,
so all Argus-2.0.x clients are compatible.
