An interesting exercise might be to map https://github.com/uwiger/pots,
specifically the lim_asynch.erl API, to e.g. websockets, and try to program
the POTS subscriber loop in node.js.

The challenges of the exercise are outlined in this presentation:

I know that there are techniques developed in node.js to deal with the
sort of issues that arise. The problem is illustrating to people when they
are needed, and just how bad it can get without them.
