-The Apollo server is much more modular and protocol agnostic.  All protocols are equal and
are built as a plugin to the the broker which just make use of exposed broker services for
routing, flow control, queueing services etc.  For example, this means that messages will
be persisted in a Store in the original protocol's encoding.  There is no protocol conversion
occurring under the covers unless it is required.
