Right. Problem is that as soon as you start with a broker scenario
you need a more sophisticated protocol. It's not difficult as such
but it's a different direction than multiplexing.

Multiplexing across TCP connections, right?
You could use names rather than numbers for the substream. That gives
you a naming flexibility similar to what we have with inproc/ipc, and
possibly some kind of service abstraction without a name service.
Definitely an interesting idea and one we should look into.
