Either that or we buffer it until it hits a certain size, and then we give
up and start spooling to the client. Personally, I'd rather see this
decision being made by the server, which knows what its load is, and knows
how many connections it has to cope with right now.

Indeed - I *firmly* believe that most of the commercial, and clued up sites
in the world will be using something cocoon-like within 10 months.
