(I think you meant 0.14 because that's what I bumped the version to.
It was at 0.13 already.)

OK, I committed the attached patch (which contains the change Thiago
wanted; one annotation instead of two). I included a lot of the
information in this thread in the commit summit.

What's the process for uploading the spec it so it's accessible when visiting

which is 0.12? (this one is pretty ancient... it doesn't mention
nonce-tcp: for instance)

Well, NoReply only means the _service_ won't reply. Callers always
need to check for a reply. For starters, the bus might cut you off....
if it runs out of memory or resources.
