Support Kestrel as a hosting provider
The KestrelHTTPServer is built on the cross-platform libuv library.
While some of the elements in Kestrel may conflict with ServiceStack's implementations (different DI, request / response filters), the overall goals are in alignment, and would bring a powerful new hosting option for ServiceStack.
ServiceStack’s .NET Core support (which runs on Kestrel) was released in v4.5.2: http://docs.servicestack.net/releases/v4.5.2

Yeah - doing some digging it *seems* like supporting the Microsoft.Net.Http.Server.WebListener, and its supporting RequestContext, Request, and Response objects would get us a long way.
Of course, they have their call stack, which is unfortunately analogous to and not directly compatible with ServiceStack.
Kestrel is tied to CoreCLR's new HTTP Abstractions, you can keep updated on any progress by voting for it at: https://servicestack.uservoice.com/forums/176786-feature-requests/suggestions/10286952-support-dnx
