> Multiplexed Protocol provides a number of benefits.  It would be useful for a developer
to be able to upgrade a server to use MultiplexedProtocol while still allowing older clients
using BinaryProtocol (or others?) to submit their older requests and have them processed as
they were before the upgrade, or perhaps at the very least get an exception telling them to
upgrade their client.  Right now I believe the behavior of connecting this way is undefined;
correct me if I am wrong.
> In THRIFT-66 I handled this by using an unused byte in the VERSION_1 protocol header
which was always initialized to zero, so I made "channel zero" something that the server side
could implement.  In that solution however both ends continued to use BinaryProtocol so it
was easy to maintain backwards compatibility.  In this case we have a server speaking MultiplexedProtocol
and a client speaking some other (BinaryProtocol, let's say).  I'm curious what folks who
worked on MultiplexedProtocol think about this notion.
