Synopsis: Problem using some chat-Sites with proxy

The site you give as an example works by not closing the
connection to the client so it can keep adding new data.
The way the Apache proxy works, it gets the entire
document before sending it to the client.  Since it never
gets the entire document, it will never send it to the
client.  Unfortunately, I can't really think of a workaround.

This isn't a bug in Apache, but it would be nice if such
things worked.  At some point the proxy may be changed so
it sends to the client while downloading from the server.
