Edgar, I missed part of your question
 > Could the package maintain a open socket a la Comet ?

Yes, this is simply done by delaying an Ajax element update until some 
event occurs. And Announcements framework comes to be handy for 
signaling those events.

By the way, a third screenshot at http://www.aidaweb.si/screenshots.html 
shows Comet in action: this is a real-time monitor of business processes 
where a current activity is marked with red square, which moves as soon 
as business process changes.

Best regards
