	Essential for messaging, e-commerce (B2B), notification, and logging.

	Should include both send/reply, windowing, and fire-and-forget.

I feel that it would be wise to abstract "messaging" from application level
protocols such as e-mail. By "messaging", I mean the transfer of data with a
begin and an end (e.g. an RPC call). For messaging, it would be nice to have
one or more generic protocols, which cater for async, sync, windowing,
multiplexing, ... with extensibility and extensible security.

It would also be nice to address streams beyond the TCP/IP level with
multiplexing, security, and extensibility.
