I see. Well that kinda makes sense, as long as the method is not
called 'connect'. It would be really silly if there were a 'connect()'
method and an 'onconnect' event, but they were unrelated :).
I feel that it probably is not productive to continue discussing
details when there is disagreement on the large-scale shape of the API
between myself, Jonas, and Hixie. My opinion on this detail, for
example, probably varies depending on whether there is a
startConversation() method on shared workers, dedicated workers,
neither, or both.
