Thanks Miguel,

>From the documentation, it simply says it throws an exception if not
integrated so that should be simple to add.  I wasn't aware that the
pipelines existed in mono which is why I've not done it.  Is there an
example of doing a check that you know of off the top of your head?

In terms of usage, it's used in the WebAPI/MVC, and doesn't appear to be
malicious related so maybe it's being misused there.  I would imagine
though that it's around theory of keeping connections open to the server
(probably for something like websockets?).
