Hello Volunteers,

For the upcoming JavaOne EDR, I would like to at least know whether or
not we should address the Reactive Streams [1] initative sponsored by
TypeSafe in Servlet 4.

I am aware that Greg Wilkins has done some exploratory work in this
area, and I am intrigued with his idea of being able to leverage the
flow-control facility of HTTP/2 to convey "backpressure".

(As an aside, I would love it if someone would explain how backpressure
differs from congestion control a la RFC 5681.)
