It would be ideal if someone on the dev team picked this up pretty soon. It's a key requirement in our system.

Avro RPC data is in clear-text, it's not encrypted.  It's not in
plain-text that's as easily consumed as JSON though.

It would not be hard to add support for Json-format Avro RPC but no
one has yet contributed such an implementation.
