At the risk of having this thread veer off on a very long tangent...

In a nutshell, we need a way of processing requests and responses over
the network with typed data. You could of course put something together
to do this using JSON and HTTP, but not without reimplementing another
framework like Avro or Thrift (both of which can do JSON encoding, and
both of which have an HTTP transport).
