Reading through that, it sounds like a well thought out approach.

Did you consider a super-lightweight version first, which only has
a process listening on one port for multiplexing traffic, and then
passes the traffic to individual processes running on the server?

  eg similar to how common IPv4 NAT does, but for gluster traffic
