On this note, if anyone wanted to write a greenfield gRPC implementation for Twisted directly, rather than using the C++ library that Nathaniel has been working on, hyper-h2 and Twisted’s built-in HTTP/2 logic is likely to be a very useful leaping off point. My high-level understanding of gRPC is that at a wire-protocol level the other things required are some protocol buffers and some code generation. That’s definitely not *nothing*, but neither is it the same as implementing the whole thing in one go.

It will be nice if it can be implemented without IO [1] as Cory
rightfully points out everywhere.

I'm a big fan of sans I/O; I think it will be interesting to see how much it can be applied to the C-language library that implements most of the behavior of gRPC Python.
