I'm not too familiar with WebSocket internals, but one thing that stuck
with me is that you'll need to keep *lots* of open connections, which is
only feasible with an eventloop-based server (which zope.server, for
one, isn't).

Apart from that, I'm not sure what features remain, and where a proper
home in the ZTK world would be.

At our company we've scheduled a project to integrate WebSockets into a large
Zope3-based application for early next year, so we'll definitely will be
doing *something* in that space -- we just don't know what, yet. ;)

What functionality did you have in mind that the ZTK might grow?
