BTW manoj, in 1.3, the complex "ring of listeners", and "last_lr" stuff is
mostly for the prefork model I think.  I'm not sure you need it for your
stuff, you'll have to be the judge.

The problem I was avoiding was starvation of any single socket... which
can easily happen in the prefork model.  Whereas in some threaded models
you're going to scan the entire list of sockets each time select/poll
returns... which is another way to ensure fairness.
