[Pyro] Newbie Question Regarding Pyro

    I'm putting together a new project which I'm using to learn Python and have
    questions about pyro. I like the idea of the abstraction that pyro offers
    from sockets programming but I cannot determine if I'm giving up some
    possibly needed functionality.

    If the server needs to send an unsolicited ad hoc message to a given client,
    is this possible? (New message or a reminder, for instance) I suppose I
    could poll a server side list from the client but I'm wondering if the
    server can initiate the exchange.

    Also, if a client wishes to converse with another particular client (in a
    chat or IM situation, for instance). What's a good mechanism for this?

    Does pyro create a persistent client/server connection? What happens if a
    pyro client goes down hard? Does it's process continue or is there a cleanup
    mechanism?

    Thanks in advance.
