New mailing list for discussion of WebSocket (et al)

As Mark discusses below, the IETF has created a mailing list for
discussion of the WebSocket protocol. I encourage anyone interested in
this technology to subscribe to this new mailing list and particpate in
the discussions.

As discussed in the APPS area meeting last week, a new mailing list has been
created to discuss the standards implications and actions related to HTTP "long
poll" techniques (e.g., COMET, BOSH) as well as new protocols that serve similar
use cases (e.g., WebSockets, rHTTP).
