Since this question keeps coming up and also seems to be the reason for the 
confusion, let me make it clear once more: There is no special protocol 
treatment in any way. No added cost, no protocol change, no magic commandline 
switches, etc. It simply is not necessary! 

This concept is so plain simple that everybody keeps wondering what we are 
hiding. You are looking for something that is not there.

Cheers,
Marek


PS: Admittedly, it took us several attempts to make it that simple. :)
