Doing this will really open up opportunities for 3rd-party web APIs to 'push' new messages to Max directly.
Anyone with thoughts on this? Or perhaps there's some external out there that already addresses this?
(I've been investigating maxurl and the current JS XMLHttpRequest implementation. So far, it doesn't seem possible. maxurl connects to the API without issue, but because of the persistent nature of the connection, there is never any readystagechange event, so the call never seems to 'complete' as the server sends keepalive newlines and never terminates, and maxurl/js XMLHttpRequest never reports the new data)
