I doubt that this works if you are behind a firewall or a NAT router ...
Google is using a nice technique for their Google Talk integration in
Gmail: they send out a request to a file of virtually infinite size
that is empty and only sent very slowly, just so that it doesn't
that will be immediately execute on the client. No need of polling or
other dirty tricks, just a plain http request. It would be cool to
have something like that in Seaside as well ;-)
