The present state of Web Sockets is that they're compiled in on Mac OS  
X but disabled via the runtime setting.  This leads to them being  
detectable in the manner Sam mentioned.  Either the compile-time  
setting needs to be fixed for Mac OS X or the runtime code fixed so  
that the feature is not detectable when disabled.  I assume that we  
want regression testing of the feature so disabling it at compile time  
does not seem like the best idea.  I guess it comes down to whether or  
not it's in good enough shape to be useful to web sites at this time.
