In any event, I'm glad to see WebSocket getting some attention :)

I assume it is because despite the hipe around WS they are far less useful
in reality for one simple reason - they aren't HTTP.

I consider server sent events as far better solution for server side push
from both client and server side, see 1 below.

WS virtually never work with proxies well and require https to work
properly. Especially today when SSL inspection becoming common WS are
quite problematic.

On the bright side it looks like WS part of beast is far more useful than
HTTP one.
