Yeah - Comet is as good as you can get over HTTP. With C#/Java
clients, we can stream lots of messages (say 1000 of them) to the
client asynchronously so they get unmarshalled into Message objects in
the background, so the consumer doesn't have to wait for each message
to arrive; leading to real high performance.

Yeah- but its Java only though - you'd need a C# client.
