It is incompatible already:

Client 22 connecting to server 23:

   $ emacsclient-emacs-22 foo
   Waiting for Emacs...
   -error Unknown&_command:&_/local/home/ulm/foo

Client 23 connecting to server 22:

   $ emacsclient-emacs-23 foo
   Waiting for Emacs...
   *ERROR*: Unknown message: Authentication failed

The above is with TCP. With Unix sockets it is much worse, because
the connection succeeds but the information sent by the client is
misinterpreted by the server, resulting in several garbage buffers
(the following is for client 23 connecting to server 22):

| CRM Buffer                Size  Mode              File
| .%  -current-frame           0  Fundamental       /dev/pts/-current-frame
|     *scratch*                0  Lisp Interaction
|   * *Messages*             302  Fundamental
|     foo                      6  Fundamental       ~/foo
|     -file                    0  Fundamental       ~/-file
|     xterm                    0  Fundamental       ~/xterm
|  %  2                        0  Fundamental       /dev/pts/2
|  %  -tty                     0  Fundamental       /dev/pts/-tty

This makes me wonder if the client shouldn't send some token
identifying the protocol version, which would be checked by the
