The post you're referring to does not indicate that streaming isn't
supported. As it says there are numerous ways to stream. So like that
post "[t]he short answer is your question isn't precise enough." Comet
is a broad term. Can you be more specific? Do you know the format? Do
you know the request being made to establish the push connection? Try it
in curl and see what happens.
