If there isn't anything there yet, how about doing it better.

Have the robot send an OGGV packet to the server.  This is some kind of
unused packet that Hadley came up with for this bot, but whatever he
did with it is lost.  When the server gets one, it sets the bot flag for that
player.  While someone can have a login with robot in it (I've seen several
people who do), they can't send an oggv packet with a normal client.

PS, is there an archive of the old CVS repository?
