PBC Set Client ID

Set the client id for this connection. A library may want to set the client id if it has a good way to uniquely identify actors across reconnects. This will reduce vector clock bloat.

Client IDs in 1.0

All requests to Riak <1.0 or Riak 1.0 without vnode_vclocks enabled should set the Client ID, which can be any string that uniquely identifies the client, for purposes of tracing object modifications in the vector clock.
