I'm pretty sure the SPDY guys on the websocket list said that most of
the benefit came from the HTTP header compression.

Also sending data compression in a POST (which is something that HTTP
supports but browsers don't seem to implement) would make most long
polling applications much more bandwidth efficient.

And it probably has sane error detection, which would make the code on
the client side much simpler than the stuff we currently used filled
with timeout detections and workarounds.
