I would generally recommend against using it. It's an implementation
of the "forever iframe". This has been superseded by server-sent evens
(which are amazing but don't work on IE) or WebSockets. In addition
it's no longer maintained so you're on your own.
AFAIK there are two WebSockets implementations out there, one for
WebClient and one for Zinc. If you're on one of those I would look
into integrating those. Unfortunately we do not yet have out of the
box for this in Seaside but you should be able to get hold of the
underlying request object and then switch to the proprietary API.
