[Catalyst] Catalyst with Twiggy with Pocket.IO (Comet)

But if I direct traffic from Apache directly to Twiggy server
I'd bypass Catalyst Authentication/Authorization part for Comet session,
I'd like to allow only authenticated users to subscribe to comet channel.
I am sure I am missing some really simple piece of the puzzle :-\
