  Yes.  Things change.

  The code in 2.x is a lot more capable than 1.x.  However, as a result,
it has some limitations that 1.x didn't.

  e.g. Shared secrets can now be any length, not just 32 characters.
However, this means that the shared secrets *cannot* be defined per
request packet.  They *must* be defined per client.

  See "dynamic clients".  That code could be updated to "peek" at the
entire packet, and create new clients based on more than just the IP

  But it *is* more work than it would have been in 1.x.
