ITS#6020 better tracking of where changes came from

Note that this is an incompatible change on the wire. Previously the rid and sid that a consumer sends to a provider were returned unchanged in any responses from the provider. (Which was, in retrospect, a mistake... It allowed the syncprov to know the sid of the consumer, but the consumer didn't know the sid of the provider.)

Now the current server's serverID is always sent. This allows both sides of the connection to know each other's serverID, which is essential for routing decisions.
