RPC Method handles could be changed to be a path+hash of signature. Advantages:

  • adding/reordering any kind of new RPC methods are not breaking existing client builds
  • server can report exactly if a method has been removed or signature changed from an older client (client could throw a special exception on rpc incompatibility)
  • build and bundling could detect if a call to the same rpc with different signatures are used from refererenced libraries, this would throw an incompatibility error/warning
