Add support to Open Tracing/Zipkin
Opentracing (http://opentracing.io/) is a popular standard for tracing correlated requests across many different services communicating via RPC. It contains implementations on several different platforms and various tools (zipkin being one of the most popular ones). The standard can be easily extended over HTTP using dedicated headers from client/server side. It would be great if Azure functions would be able to provide more or less transparent support for it.
We are currently working on supporting a suite of Azure based distributed tracing solutions. We have no current plans to support this tool, but would love to hear from the community, and are leaving this item open to collect feedback :)

Alex, open tracing is not a tool. It's a standard / protocol. Nothing stands on a way of making it natively available in Azure. Even more: this would allow out-of-the-box integration using dozens of existing opentracing libraries.
