Creating custom client features

Optional features are commented out like this:
<!-- This is the beginning of a comment marker
The following characters mark the end of the comment: -->
Everything between the markers is ignored as a comment. To enable a feature, either copy it and place it outside of the commented section, or move the comment markers as needed to exclude the feature from the commented section.
