My model supports long-lived connections with
short individual transactions (HTTP with keepalives,
for example).  I think Manoj's design could support
a broader range of protocols, because it doesn't
associate specific protocol handling states (read
request, prepare response, send response) with
dedicated thread pools the way my design does.
