"socket.io.js" + JSInterop

Hi All, 
Just a small query. I am working on an application that requires real-time interaction between server and client. After considering GWT for some time, I am coming to the conclusion that GWT has not, does not, and will not support this kind of interaction. I may be wrong, but I suspect that there is no easy way to achieve this functionality with GWT.  I am aware that some years ago the Atmosphere framework provided something along these lines, but the Atmosphere project is, I am sorry to say, something of a mess at the moment, and appears to be fading. The other project I am considering is of course SocketIO but I can't see how it would be possible to add a SocketIO client to a GWT project. ("socket.io.js" + JSInterop gives me nightmares and wouldn't work anyway, would it?)  But maybe it (real-time + GWT) has been done already, I would like to know. 
Thanks for any insights.
