This isn't even the point though.  My personal opinions on Xprt
notwithstanding, the thing is that everything we do breaks Xprt, which
is bad for both of us.  We're burdened with Xprt and a pile of hacks
(and sometimes figuring out what those hacks should be) to make it work,
and the Xprt guys are burdened with a perpetually broken Xprt in master.
At this point, I'm pretty sure splitting Xprt out of the main tree would
be a win for everyone.
