Nit: It is HTTP/2.

Note that there are already two versions of HTTP transport, the old "dumb"
one and the newer "smart" one.

The smart one is difficult to speed up (due to nature of the negotiations),
but usually is pretty reliable (the efficiency isn't horrible).

Now, the old "dumb" protocol is pretty unreliable and slow. HTTP/2 probably
can't do anything with the reliability problems, but probably could improve
the speed a bit.

Websockets over HTTP/2 (a.k.a. "websockets2") has not been defined yet.
With Websockets(1), it would probably already be possible to tunnel the
native git smart transport protocol over it. Probably not worth it.

Well, it is published already.
