QPACK is not as scary as it may be made out to be sometimes.  Doubtless,
it's some work.  That's why it's better to start doing it sooner rather
than later.  (Alternatively, grab an existing implementation [1].)  There
is a bunch of us in the #compression Slack channel willing to help.

It could.  Email me or drop by the #compression Slack channel if you
need a blob like that and I will make one for you.
