I want to write in C for a reason. It's everywhere, it already has virtually
all dependencies in all (posix) systems, it's very easy to deploy and it can
run *everywhere*. And if python is not available, I'd say rust and goland
won't be either.
So as I understand, right now only one protocol is implemented - Perspective
Broker which is only for python clients and AMP is work in progress. Is
someone working on it? Is there some public branch with current work?
