[Twisted-web] Implementing hanging get with twisted web

I had a question about implementing hanging-gets. A hanging get is
basically when the server "hangs" onto the http request until either a
certain period of time or until there is an event is triggered. It is
a hack for implementing event driven messaging on top of HTTP.
Alex Russell references it in his blog: http://alex.dojotoolkit.org/?p=545
What's the best way to implement hanging-gets using twisted? I have a
web page that I want to immediately update everytime there is a change
continually made asynchronous requests to the server and the server
implemented hanging-gets, then that would be a good solution.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
