Hi,

I've been doing some experiments with php and if can use something like

<?php

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) {
	echo "hello world";
	flush();
	sleep(10);
}

?>

to keep a http link open for an arbitrary amount of time and  
routinely display "hello world" in the browser window.

Is is possible to write a mongrel handler to do something similar?

Thanks

jeb
