At the moment the metaservers accept new server listings from anybody
who wants to set up a server.  It has been this way for many years.

I'm not sure this is such a good idea, given the current size of games
and the rate of play.

What do people think ...

1.  lock down the metaservers so that new servers cannot be listed,

2.  add a way to accept new servers,

3.  keep the server to metaserver UDP solicitation channel open for
existing servers.

This is just for discussion purposes.  The infrastructure team would
benefit from knowing what people think.
