Comment:
The WebSocket API should provide a polling mechanism too. Only event based
capture messages is not good because if a method in a JS-Class send a message
the reply arrive in the event handler. The event handler has no access (if no
global var exists) to the class instance who send the request. With a polling
mechanism the class instance can wait for a reply and with webworkers there
should be no problem with waiting and polling.
