What's the problem? If we equip the server with HTTP keepalives then
then the subsequent XMLHttpRequest should reuse the socket from the
previous request. All we've got is several thousand persistent
sockets connected to a listening process on a server. It's the same
sort of engineering challenge ejabberd has in trying to keep lots of
connections open at once - and it seems to cope extremely well.
