Conflating implementation with being in favor of continuations is
probably not accurate. Implementing isn't a vote for the idea, more
just being compliant.

In okhttp we had to implement continuations in order to be spec
compliant.  We deferred writing continuations until we got a bug
report as the user overflowed 16k. Latest codebase is on -13 and
supports continuation. In any codebase, I would love an opportunity to
rip out complicated code for something simpler. I personally would
love to rip out code I wrote in favor of jumbo frames. I loved ripping
out code to support -13.

Love isn't a requirement though, so if folks believe that continuation
is a compromise worth continuing, I'm not going to make my own
protocol :)
