If you remove protobuf, can you describe what is left? Recently scripts/rpc.py
was refactored to break it up into a set of Python libraries in scripts/rpc,
plus the command line tool at scripts/rpc.py. What functionality does this new
code provide over and above what is already present there?
SPDK is certainly in need of better management tools, so in the most general
sense the community is very supportive of your effort here. New management tools
can also go directly into the main spdk repository (a separate repository was
only suggested when we thought this was a Python binding to the SPDK libraries).
I'm wondering if an easier way forward would be to continue refining the Python
packages in scripts/rpc to be more general purpose libraries for sending the
JSON RPCs. What are your thoughts on that?
