We just added WebSockets support to the Zotonic CMS/framework.
It is used as an alternative transport layer to Comet and is fully integrated.  

The system automatically chooses between using Comet or WebSockets for the server push support.
Server push support is enabled using the {% stream %} tag in the page template.

The browser sends urlencoded forms to the server and the server sends javascript to the browser. 
This enables a very flexible way of communication with minimal programming on the browser side.

WebSockets support will be part of the upcoming 0.3 release.
