Alternative to polling, a plugin that implements a comet API so you can push results to the browser as they arrive.
Currently this would require writing a streaming strategy that streams JS, because that's the only way to stream content to the client. would be nice to have a moost::http upgrade first.
wouldn't be any use to the browser unless we had a flash transport. could be used by the boffin/desktop client, to stream results. not a priority for now.
this exists for boffin now. will merge into my master soon.
