+1. I've been waiting for the spec to settle down a bit before beginning this; however, I'd like to start by (or at least near) the SF F2F.

I also think that this will help clarify corners of the spec, since everytime we raise an ambiguity, we really oughta write a test for it.

I actually don't want to work on it since as many people know, I'm technically part-time (20%) employed now hacking/traveling. But if no one steps up to contribute here, I will probably do so. That would be terrible because I'm busy traveling most of the time, and if people left it up to me, I would write everything in Go just to learn it. I know Mark has some basic SPDY code in Python that would be a good foundation for this work.
