Helge, if I had my way, we wouldn't touch C in any way whatsoever for any
of the server side libraries except as an absolute last resort, but this
life is full of compromise, and I'm trying to be amicable to come up with
solutions that we can agree on.

For HTTP2 as well, I'd like plans to eventually move to pure swift native
implementations rethought for the language.
