[BitTorrent] protocol violation "key flag"?

I can personally give details of the error involved in one of the
BNBT variants, as I wrote the code (based off of the code of another
modification, taken from the BNBT forums) that bans based on HTTP
User Agent.

The error generated from this ban in my code is "Client version is
banned, check with tracker administrator."

I have a feeling that the key flag is for one of those user-specific
download enforcement methods described in the snipped part of Brian's
message.

Finally there are some tracker admins that have taken to banning
certain
clients based on their HTTP User-Agent string.  I think the notion
here
is that they don't want peers that are using old/broken ccode, or
those
clients that have otherwise been deemed "leecher-friendly."  Some of
the
BNBT variants support this.

None of the above should affect someone using the current released
(or
CVS) mainline, so I think the original poster is mightily confused.
