I am with Tim here (it was me that pushed Tim to complete this work in the first place).

That is independent if you ask me. We should have a proper Thrift one, same with REST. Or
do you want to toss out REST as well since we now have PB RPCs?

I am willing to work and maintain Thrift2, I said that before. This thread though got derailed
in general wishful thinking, so could we please maybe vote if we want Thrift and more especially
Thrift2. Because we either throw out Thrift in total for PB or maintain it for the time being.
