      Huh? Are you saying, you want to switch from polling to push when number of users grow?

      I'd suggest that, the more number of users you have, the less is push a good architectural choice. Better to make use of HTTP caching to decrease umber of requests that actually hit your backend.

      Look at archived feeds for this purpose <http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5005> or check out <http://roy.gbiv.com/untangled/2008/paper-tigers-and-hidden-dragons> which I think is indeed a very practical solution despite its 'esoteric' appeal at first glance :-)

      If you feel you must use push, then there are solutions already such as XMPP.
