Available functionality

Steam API provides an ability to register a game server to Steam master server for player to find it and get it's ip and port,
that is later used by the client to directly connect to the game server.
In order to players find/select server they want the game server has to send an information about itself to Steam master server.
This information could be used to filter out server the player is not interested in.
