I know Zookeeper has the REST bridge, and that you wrote the Thrift bridge, but I always hoped
zookeeper itself could be properly implemented over HTTP somehow with Netty Server Connection,
without proxy clients. I think it's possible in theory, especially with async HTTP or long
polling (and maybe this is easier with HTTP2?)

For my personal use case, I was hoping to be able to do things like a double barrier for jobs
running on two different batch systems in two different continents behind restrictive firewalls.

I know this sounds like a weird use case, but it's par for the course if you are using Grid
computing resources, where the only ports you can reliably do anything on are 80 and 443.
