HTTP/2 protocol support in itself doesn’t seem very complex to me (the protocol). The thing which makes it complex is reasonable scheduling of request/response handlers (the multiplexed streams on the single socket). And that is very much tied to the scheduling library people use, hence I wonder what can be done here in a generic way.
