OK. Thanks for your feedback, Pieter. I think, then, that I will just do it the simple way.

Making pluggable protocols in the core library is just a very hard thing. It would require some major redesigns.

People have added transports, and it's doable. They're not pluggable though, in the sense we usually mean.

I built a simple framework for pluggable protocols over inproc bridges, some years ago: https://github.com/hintjens/vtx. It didn't get much attention.
