The main use case I know of for non-browser websocket *client* use is
firewall traversal. I think you can also do this by simply using SSL
though, although there may be some corner cases where that does't work as
well.

I think the main benefit of building it out in proton though is to get more
uniform support for it on proton based servers, e.g. if proton can just
autodetect it, then it should be pretty trivial to support it in qpidd as
well as dispatch.
