Stargate (REST HTTP) is not going to replace Thrift.

Stargate does support scanners.

Yes, use Thrift.

I was not able to get Stargate or the legacy REST API working acceptably at
the time 0.20 was released. I don't remember what my problems were -- I
think Stargate doesn't yet support scanners, and I couldn't find a working
ruby client for REST.

The only downside we've had is that our developers on Windows can't seem to
get the thrift ruby gem installed.

I don't see what Stargate could offer that would get sites like Stumbleupon
to migrate away from Thrift, so even if Stargate improves, Thrift support
will likely continue.
