I would reccomend looking into support JEP-25. If you built an open-source
implementation of a polling server, then clients (like exodus) could also
use it to poll via HTTP. Your webclient could use the same protocol for
polling and getting data in and out of it's session. It would be cool to
have an OS version of a polling daemon that other folks could use. (AFAIK,
the only one is a commercial version from Jabber, Inc.)
