Can you imagine a way of redirecting clients (upon connect) based on their versions? So something similar to SRV record based port redirection, only for client versions this time. Perhaps doable with TSDNS or some custom code/scripting?

The idea behind this is obvious: I'm still running 3.0.13.8 which works well for clients up to 3.1.10 but I'm also aware of the potential number of users banging my host with newer clients (they were stupid enough to update or lured into that by someone) and I would love to "drop catch" them somehow and redirect to a 32-slot free TS running the latest version. As silly as it sounds it could be an entertaining thing to do.

The TS3 Client sends its version timestamp in the first 3 packets of the connection handshake.

You should be able to determine which version it is and then redirect the client to the appropriate server.
