Assuming you move forward with this effort...

Since you are changing the idmap datastructure I suggest adding some
signature and versioning fields to the beginning.  That way idmap can
check them during registration to guard against old idmappers lying

Second, you may want to consider a version negotiation packet exchange
right after opening the socket.  Making it more complicated, I know, but
might come in handy in the future.
