Wait;  it should be a new type code message, so the header format/data
section can be different.      And include in the error response;  the
160-bit  Bitcoin addresses the user should send the ransom, err,  I
mean  payment to for various drop rates,  and a declaration of  the
amount  of total payment that needs  to be confirmed on the blockchain
 per  Kilobyte for  successful delivery  of the payload at the offered
service levels :)
