> The ["nest" 
> instruction|http://guacamole.apache.org/doc/0.9.14/gug/protocol-reference.html#nest-stream-instruction]
>  was created in the early days of the Guacamole protocol as a means of 
> splitting up large instructions. At the time, this was necessary because 
> images and audio were transmitted within instructions that required the 
> entire block of data to be available at once. The "nest" instruction thus 
> provided a means of streaming data for instructions that otherwise did not 
> support it.
> The Guacamole protocol switched over instructions with actual stream 
> semantics around the 0.9.0 release (back in 2014). Since that time, the nest 
> instruction has become unnecessary, and is actually no longer used in 
> practice.
> It's time the instruction and related functions/structures were deprecated.
