We are looking with great interest at the protocol but still no too much
real work specifically with it. 

At the same time we have been working with a java-socket applet [1] to
provide jsVortex [2] with a cross-web socket API to avoid depending on
firefox nsISocketInterface (which is firefox specific while this applet
allows us to support IE and other java-enabled web browsers). Maybe we
could use this as an step to implement a similar function but providing
WebSocket API.

The unofficial plan (;-) is to fully integrate WebSocket protocol into
Vortex, Turbulence, jsVortex, PyVortex...providing support to write and
expose BEEP services on top of WebSocket API which is an appealing idea.
