Another update on the subject.

It seems that the HTTP 2.0 working group has relaxed, after a
excruciating battle, requirements on ciphers and their entanglement
with the ALPN protocols advertised.
This results in many less requirements to have ALPN and HTTP 2.0 work together.

I am reviewing the JDK API and other open source API and will come up
soon with a proposal for the ALPN API.

Sorry for the long delay about this, but the outcome of the HTTP 2.0
working group was important to decide how much was needed in the JDK
for an implementation to be able to implement HTTP 2.0.

Thanks !
