	Title           : The WebSocket protocol
	Author(s)       : Ian Fette

   The WebSocket protocol enables two-way communication between a client
   running untrusted code running in a controlled environment to a
   remote host that has opted-in to communications from that code.  The
   security model used for this is the Origin-based security model
   commonly used by Web browsers.  The protocol consists of an opening
   handshake followed by basic message framing, layered over TCP.  (In
   theory, any transport protocol could be used so long as it provides
   for reliable transport, is byte clean, and supports relatively large
   message sizes.  However, for this document, we consider only TCP.)
   The goal of this technology is to provide a mechanism for browser-
   based applications that need two-way communication with servers that
   does not rely on opening multiple HTTP connections (e.g. using
   XMLHttpRequest or &lt;iframe&gt;s and long polling).
