It all works very well. We also use C++ Thrift clients and servers within the client side
machines and internally between server components. We even SWIG Thrift-based client side libraries
for use by the server side code. And we also use it to "flatten" structures into buffers and

It is easy to write your own transports and protocols as extensions of the originals. It is
easy to modify the code generator.
