Number of Clients/IP Addreress

A way to fix the number of clients for Dynamic IP addresses and
multiple clients hidding behind one IP address.

Assign each client a unique ID number. The best way I see to do
this would be to have each Deschall client request a unique ID
number from the server on it's initial connection, this way nobody
would have to try and assign a unique number to every client out
there it would be handled by the server. If the client doesn't request
a unique ID number just continue on as normal so it doesn't break
existing clients.

Any comments/suggestions?
