This would require the standardization of a JavaScript API for
BEEP, but it would be worthwhile because BEEP is explicitly
designed for building new protocols.  BEEP messaging would
probably map better into JavaScript than a pure socket API.
(Would we want to insist that the payload be XML?)

Of course, it wouldn't work if it was only implemented in the
ICEbrowser ... (so I'm curious what other browser developers
think of the idea)
