[openstack-dev] [marconi] Websocket transport

Hi folks,

We have been discussing doing at least a basic/poc TCP transport as a way to keep ourselves honest wrt the API abstraction work that was recently started. I would like to propose using websockets<https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6455> for this work, for a few reasons:

  1.  It saves us from having to invent our own, non-standard framing protocol.
  2.  It already defines push semantics that we could leverage later for streaming notifications
  3.  It would lay the groundwork for investigating the viability and security considerations around allowing browser-based apps to interact directly with queues
