No need to do this. The next version of wmsplugin will register its handler only with a version of remotecontrol that has getVersion.
The problem is that I cannot change the existing wmsplugin.jar and this will not care about incompatible changes in remotecontrol.
(Maybe remotecontrol could use reflection on the RequestHandler subclass supplied at the registration call to find out the version of wmsplugin...
First: I'm not sure this will work. Maybe trying the registration will throw some exception. Second: This would get really complicated.)

I'm not sure about adding interfaces or internal changes. Will wmsplugin compiled with a certain version of remotecontrol still work when I add a public method or change some private method?
