Exactly. SPDY was pioneered by Google and it is now being offered on many
servers out there. But Google is also completely involved in the IETF effort
for HTTP2 so I don't think we have any reasons do doubt that SPDY will be
replaced with HTTP2 as soon as the spec has matured enough. HTTP2 will
probably also have more supporters and implementors from the fraction that
never liked SPDY...

That's why I decided to "skip" the SPDY phase even though it means that we
don't have many public servers to try against just yet.
