sv_cullentities (Feature coding #119)
A technique used by the server that prevent the use of wallhacks by not sending info on where the entities are locaded when they not are in the PoV (e.g. behind walls) of the player.
Advantages: wallhacks renders useless, eats less bandwidth.
Some other Quake engines that already use it is Darkplaces, FTE and recent ProQuake.

Just wanted to add this link that describes how to implement it:
Should add some (minor) disadvantages too:
- Requires more CPU time from the server (no way!!)
- Glow from players that have picked up pent/quad wont glow through walls for other players (this on is also kind of obvious)
- Same as above with glow from powerups/explosions (when sv_cullentities == 2)
