Note that REQ/REP over multicast is the most popular communication paradigm
over TIBCO Rendezvous.  Multicast brings the following advantages:

* Location independence - the client doesn't need to know where the server
* Fault tolerance and load sharing - the servers decide between themselves
how to handle requests whether primary-secondary or sharding of topic
namespace.  You can transparently bounce servers without updating state in
the clients.
