Hi Julian,

Having in mind best web practices I think Phillipe is right in saying is not
recommended for production. That, as you also pointed, wont mean it can't be
used for production. 
But that really can't be recommended due to some scenarios where requests are
expensive. Like in web apps for cell phones where requests are the most
expensive delays.
