It would be easy to write a CGi script that produced an endless stream
of XML. Note that you don't get an end tag for the outermost element if
you disconnect, of course - true for all these protocols.

When the Jabber people contacted me early on I suggested they use a
stream of smaller documents, one per message.

Another approach is to have a second URI that, when accessed, will end
the stream and disconnect from the server end.
