The same goes for most prototypes inside that '#if 0'. I see it more as an
easy list to see what prototypes were removed than as proper examples of the
prototype. You're right about CLIENT being defined in system-specific
include files, I just wasn't worried about it because it was inside an '#if 0'
that will never be turned into an '#if 1'. If a specific platform needs that
prototype, we'll figure out how to arrange the prototype then :)

But if you want me to remove it, that's fine.
