Hi, List.

We're building an application, which requires communication from server to 
client and therefore it was decided to try out Websockets, which in theory 
fulfills our needs best. A basic websocket server, that listens to port 
8080 and communicates with outer world, was created (using Ratchet [1]). 
But here comes a problem, that we can't solve: we need an 
existing $GLOBALS['TSFE']->fe_user object to send personalized messages to 
a user, as well as would be nce to use the power of TYPO3 localization, 
and, probably other features from API. Is there a way to invoke TYPO3 
engine and re-create environment, as if it is usual HTTP request, or we 
need to build initialization from scratch, duplicating index.php and 
index_ts.php of TYPO3?
