My concern with a new port is that how do you specify that http://example.com:8100/somefile.html should use HTTP/2.0?

Iím not convinced that HTTP/2.0 over port 80 is dead just yet - there are some upgrade paths that havenít been tested with proxies (and boy I would love to see a list of Ďbrokení proxies that I can test with) that might map a path forward.
