I agree there is no man power to implement a new protocol.
But if we just use one - openwire or something similar - it may be
much easier.

Adding the dependency and getting it to build should be few hours/days,
then adding various handlers can be done very incrementally.

If I read correctly Rainer's list, some improvements will be easier if he
had a better/more extensible communication mechanism, load balancing in
particular.

I don't have a lot of time - certainly not for a new connector/branch/etc,
but
I and others may find few hours if it would be easier -
and I think a more extensible communication would do that. Changing existing
code - without breaking backward compat - is pretty hard.

Why not ? It seems well in scope.
