`GET /?cmd=subscribe` SN API calls are inteneded to be permanent
to provide HTML5 Server-Sent Events. If I'm getting it right, Apache is
not assumed to be perfect to support such long-living connections and
SN nodes will be switched to direct HTTP access after all. But for now,
they are behind Apache porxy with 600 sec proxy timeout, so, logs
should not grow too fast.
