Are there some open source websocket server implementations, especially ready for production? (Are there Erlang based out there?)

I use socket.io on the client. And node.js with socket.io on the server. Works great. Mainly due to this. Socket.io will try websockets first.. If the browser doesn't support them fall back to flash sockets. If that doesn't work fall back to ajax style polling.

The Yaws Erlang webserver has built-in support for websockets.
