Could we have separate patches to introduce the server-side capability and then to request it in the client? That way, people with old servers can apply the patch introducing the capability if they want. The new meaning of the "thin-pack" capability should also be documented in Documentation/technical/protocol-capabilities.txt. Done that way and with enough time between the server advertising the capability and the client looking for it, it seems like a good idea.
