Now that grpc is build in, can the nginx team collaborate with the grpc team and the kubernetes team to implement grpc-web (grpc for browsers) directly into nginx please

The official grpc-web client is getting ready for public release: "The current release is a Beta release, and we expect to announce General-Availability by Oct. 2018." according to their readme at

Right now, they only list Envoy as a supported proxy (plus some custom apps). It would be a great plus to have grpc-web protocol supported in nginx as well, now that this feature is likely to receive wider use. I understand the repo already has a sample nginx module implementation, so hopefully this should be an easy addition.
