I'm not quite as pessimistic as you are, Poul-Henning. I'm sure there
will be some specific use-cases where HTTP/2 is a win, which is why I
want client libraries in Python to have access to it. But I agree, it
seems that there are going to be a reasonable number of use-cases
where HTTP/2 is less effective than HTTP/1.1.
