Subject Re: Thrift in an embedded setting
Date Mon, 11 Jan 2016 19:50:38 GMT
Hi Randy,

Do you think we could somehow merge our cpp2 efforts? 
(https://github.com/hcorg/thrift/tree/cpp_v2)
It's my old branch, had to put it on little hiatus, yet I think some 
parts of it could be useful.

Best regards,
Konrad
