I use a static root page that is a rend.Page (i.e. not Athena), then  
use a redirect to the base livepage:

class Root(rend.Page):
     addSlash = True
     def childFactory(self, ctx, name):
         if name == 'main':
             return MainLivePage()
     def renderHTTP(self, ctx):
         request = inevow.IRequest(ctx)
         return ''

This Root page will be long lived and a new MainLivePage is created  
for every request. That way the MainLivePage has a connection to the  
browser in the way the Root page couldn't.

If there's a better way to do it, I'd be interested to hear it,
