UT2003 & UT2004 Incompatible

A post to the BeyondUnreal Forums (thanks nvmax) has a revelation that Epic's Tim Sweeney made to the Unreal Mods mailing list:

Networking won't work between UT2003 and UT2004. We had initially planned to support that, but the network code has changed so much in order to reduce bandwidth, support vehicles, and increase performance, that we couldn't keep the two games network-compatible.

Actually, last I checked - and I am stretching my memory here, the compiled code for UT2003 ran up close to 100MB. If I'm off, it's definitely around that area, and larger than 10MB. Granted it's much smaller than the content but that's expected and normal.

As far as compatibility goes, I'm a bit saddened. It would have been nice to be able to play on UT2k3 servers from time to time, though for the most part, all my friends will upgrade to 2k4 and be solely running on 2k4 servers.
