Hello,

I'm looking for a method to support WebSockets over FastCGI protocol.

Today they are not compatible:

1. The web socket protocol is full duplex protocol without knows initial length
   of data to send. (No content_length CGI variable)
2. FastCGI client is limited to read only specific amount of data as given by 
CONTENT_LENGTH.


- Are there any plans to update FastCGI protocol to support WebSockets?
- Is there any way to support web-sockets as they are today?


Thank you,
   Artyom
