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?
