Many changes aiming at reducing the size of request data #233
I was looking at the client/server syntax "runtime" last week, and I was making myself familiar with it before doing a big cleanup. This is very welcome, I don't have to do the clean up anymore! :D
Give me tomorrow to look at it in more details, so that I can convince myself we are not breaking anything (especially the revised implementation of client values).
Please add some comments for implementation decisions.
