    Removing atmosphere, revert to plain websockets

    Atmosphere has been use for last two years to provide a reliable transport 
layer for the client-server communications. However, at this moment it seems 
better to remove it because the library is not longer maintained and its 
integration with wave's code base is quite complex. Another reason is the lack 
of native clients of atmosphere for iOS and Android.
    I think we can provide easily those features we liked in atmosphere:
     - In real environments it is required to do keep alive pings (aka heart 
beats) through websocket to avoid network issues.
     - Long-polling alternative is becoming less necessary these days as long 
as websocket is now widely adopted. Anyway, I think to implement long polling 
is not so hard.
