use tRPC for RPC calls instead of gRPC

Hi, I know that tRPC and gRPC are different things - despite the similar name. Nevertheless I would like to hear your opinion on using tRPC for things you would normally use gRPC for. What are possible use cases? What are the pros and cons. use case: call a remote render server to render assets pros: - You can keep using your zod typings and don't have to recreate them for all needed gRPC calls. cons: - Both tasks need to be running on typescript or you need at least to create a typescript wrapper for that task - gRPC has much lower data usage

plenty of people use trpc for comms between microservices, it's up to you if it's worth the tradeoffs within your org
