[c-lightning] Pubsub API?

Good morning Will,
C-lightning JSONRPC implementation is geared towards command-response, not pubsub, so tapping there will require quite a bit of rework. In principle this is doable due to how ctan asynchronous I/O allows creating separate read and write "greenthreads", so it should be possible to push messages to the JSONRPC socket whenever gossipd accepts an update.
(admittedly my knowledge of c-lightning code is a few months old at this point, so...)
