Actually the agent protocol does extend nicely to multiple clients - I
forgot the name but there is an additional wrapper between the
client/server originating message and the guest received message, that
is currently used for server or client originating messages, and can be
reused to have multiple in flight different client messages. We don't
use it for guest generated messages, but we could as well. Multicast
would be another number.
