This experiment is only for HTTP without TLS for the moment. TFO and
HTTP/2 are a create combo and I plan to test them soon. We are using
Ubuntu 16.04 which ships with openssl 1.0.2 and supports
Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation which is required for HTTP/2.
I too would like to go TLS only, but we have a long tail of software
and versions we'd like to support. We also have mappers dispersed all
over with world (YAY!), but some have slow or unreliable connections.
TLS has traditionally suffered from extra round trips and has seemed
to suffer more when connections have some packet loss.
