Yeah, that's basically where this rewrite is heading, probably just a random
number sent from the master to the slave which the slave should parrot back
each time it connects. The tricky part is that this slow-link/big-logfile
problem means that the previous connection might still be sending data when
the new connection is established. (the slave thinks the link is dead because
it hasn't received a keepalive response, it disconnects, but the FIN is stuck
behind the big logfile).
