Demo of automatic reload with ActionController::Live

BrowserController is the control channel for the browser. When the page is loaded, application.js registers an SSE with the browser to watch /control. /control watches the filesystem for changes. Whenever a change happens on the filesystem, an SSE is sent to the browser, telling it to reload.
