If you're talking about the constant client side refresh requests, the
code is identical between the C and lua version so reverting back to
the old one won't help a bit (especially since it doesn't answer to the
http name anymore).

On a constructive note, this is something I'd to love to fix but do not
know how to. Maybe keeping an active http connection so the server can
send events to the client? Anyone know how stuff like Google Wave handle
server side updates?
