Sorry for the delayed response. Extensibility is the strength of this
phoenix design. Notice that it takes only about 80 lines of code to
implement the core of phoenix. Even the placeholders are implemented as
non-invasive extensions of this core. It's an open question whether it's
desirable to hide the proto bits when exposing these customization
points, and if so, what that would look like.
