      Instead of having the client advertise a particular version
      number in the git protocol, we have managed extensions and
      backwards compatibility by having clients and servers
      advertise capabilities that they support. This is far more
      robust than having each side consult a table of
      known versions, and provides sufficient information for the
      protocol interaction to complete.
      
      However, it does not allow servers to keep statistics on
      which client versions are being used. This information is
      not necessary to complete the network request (the
      capabilities provide enough information for that), but it
      may be helpful to conduct a general survey of client
      versions in use.
      
      We already send the client version in the user-agent header
      for http requests; adding it here allows us to gather
      similar statistics for non-http requests.
