Subject Re: Avro RPC interop

Another interesting development to consider is that SPDY is starting to
gain wide adoption.

Free load balancers (nginx, apache, HAProxy) either have it or are
planning support for it.  As a replacement for HTTP it supports
out-of-order requests and server initiated requests.  Since load balancers
and proxies will support SPDY over time, and will not likely support a
proprietary avro protocol, Avro over HTTP/SPDY will have its uses.

However, the above developments do not reduce the need for Avro to have
standardized secure socket based asynchronous RPC spec.
