Hi Kevin,

I think gRPC is probably your best bet. It's true that it isn't in GA yet, 
but it's far more mature than any other options I'm aware of for protobuf 

You can't "use" generic services per se. Generic services just provide an 
abstract interface -- someone has to provide an implementation. There 
aren't any mature implementations of abstract services floating around that 
I am aware of.
