I think that it is fine if we have exceptions not handled when a client
tries to ask a new features on an old server.
but my question was about old operations. e.g. Assuming that you do a
create table with all the arguments/configuration that the old server was
able to understand, is it fair to have a 1.1 client that throws an
exception against a 1.0 server because in the new 1.1 the create logic is
not compatible?
