this type of block, retain only the newest

find only the latest entry. Even if the sblock

would get the users back on track.

Right.  But as you said, it could only be done by changing the protocol. For
this version, my goal was to just introduce the idea (with a working but far
from perfect implementation) and try to see if people would find it useful.

Since the protocol will break in 0.7, couldn't we have it implemented by then?
