Yes, you can do this in the same libwww app. If the server triggers the
requests then the event loop sample is a good starting point - change the
stdin call with a server handler.

If they are triggered by something else then you need a mechanism for
catching these events. Web commander shows how this can be done, for
example, using windows events to catch mouse clicks etc.
