Really cool to see another Node framework that uses CoffeeScript. SocketStream joins the likes of:

* Brunch: http://brunchwithcoffee.com/

* Zappa: https://github.com/mauricemach/zappa

* Coffeemate: https://github.com/coffeemate/coffeemate

Of course, SocketStream's use of websockets to deliver all content (after an initial payload) is a very different, very opinionated approach. I also like the look of API namespacing, which allows client and server code to be structured analogously without having to use `requires` at the top of every file (one of Node's weaker points, as Ryan Dahl would be the first to tell you). It all sounds very well thought-out, and I can't wait to see where this framework goes from here.
