I think it likely that ab's design itself would contribute to Apache2
reading as slower in this case, given the (accurate) analysis you've
provided.  Even though ab's concurrency model is a *little* better now,
it is still the case as far as I know that ab will sit around and wait for
the response to come back before sending the next request out on that
connection.  At least this used to be the case, I'd have to look again at
the code to see if it still is.  Aaron could probably enlighten us here.

Anyway, what I'm saying is: don't make design decisions of this type based
only on the results of an ab run.
