Hi Luke,

It seems to work but I still need to test more thoroughly. What I do is in the 
access handler callback, for requests that should be handled by a long poll I 
call MHD_suspend_connection(), then do MHD_create_response_from_callback() and 
return. When my application is ready to actually respond to the poll it calls 
MHD_resume_connection() on the connection. The event loop then wakes up and 
calls the callback registered with MHD_create_response_from_callback where I 
fill in the response on the first call and then return 

It took me a large amount of messing around to figure this all out. If you want 
I can throw together a small example that implements this.

Does it work besides that? I was never able to get it to work at all...
