They aren't required (ie. a single-thread single-process thing like Zeus
could do it easily), but I don't see how you can do it cleanly with a
process per simultaneous request model like Apache currently is simply
because you have to have multiple requests being processed and sent at
approximately the same time.  You can't do that inside one process in
Apache right now, you don't want to pre-handle them sequentially then
buffer the whole thing, and you really don't want to use any form of IPC
because that sucks.
