      Mongos load balancing (PYTHON-852) introduces a race related to MongoClient._writable_max_wire_version. If I start a sharded cluster with a 2.4 and a 2.6 mongos and connect to both, half the time _writable_max_wire_version is 2, half the time it is zero.

      After a small random number of iterations this code:

      for i in range(1000):
          client = MongoClient('mongodb://localhost:1026,localhost:1027')
          print i

      ... attempts a 2.6-style write command against the 2.4 mongos and throws:

      Traceback (most recent call last):

      We can use this opportunity to remove races related to outdated ServerDescriptions, and rely on each socket's ismaster response (PYTHON-829):

      • *DONE*: Remove MongoClient._writable_max_wire_version().
      • *DONE*: Methods that used it must select a server and call get_socket() for a SocketInfo, and use that SocketInfo's wire version (which came from an ismaster call on that socket when it was opened) to determine the wire protocol, before formatting a message.
      • *DONE*: Functions in message.py (and _cmessagemodule) that took a client instance take SocketInfo instead.
      • *DONE*: Add SocketInfo.send_message_with_response and other APIs that message.py needs.
      • *DONE*: Move Server._check_bson_size to SocketInfo, ensure it's tested for all paths.
      • *DONE*: Refactor SocketInfo.command, helpers._command, and network.command?
      • *DONE*: Delete MongoClient._send_message?
      • *DONE*: Actually retest against live mixed version cluster, and add test to pymongo-mockup-tests
      • *DONE*: For absolute correctness in Collection.options(), and Database.collection_names() we should get a socket, check its wire version, and if it's < 3 use that socket to query the system collection
      • *DONE*: Delete test_wire_version_mongos_ha, which should have been deleted in PYTHON-852 anyway.
      • *DONE*: Delete max_wire_version etc. from MongoClient
