earlzdotnet writes "A working copy of the HTTP 2.0 spec has been
released. Unlike previous versions of the HTTP protocol, this
version will be a binary format, for better or worse. However, this
protocol is also completely optional: 'This document is an alternative
to, but does not obsolete the HTTP/1.1 message format or protocol.
HTTP's existing semantics remain unchanged.'"
