Apologies if this one is too obvious :)

A beginner in me would like to know as to what all changes would be
required to get this protocol running. Server? Client? Client, obviously!
But i feel it's possible without any server change (maybe for most
cases). The client would ask for an update every n seconds, and maybe
check if the new data has a timestamp newer than the previous one.

Additionally, i would like some action to take place every time the user
presses <cr> in a form field, or selects a different "radio" option.

Time has come to make http interactive! Say what?
