Filling gigE and requests/sec aren't targets that concern me as a
user. They sound like nice beanchmarks though...

Latency is another story, so keeping connections open for 15minutes at
a time, and spoon feeding small bits of content quickly is more
important (for me). I guess that is why comet servers have come into
existence. Perhaps I just need to deal with the fact that we need
multiple kinds of HTTP servers.

(Speaking of pet peeves -- why does Apache handle so many things
besides HTTP, and yet I have to get other servers to handle certain
kinds of HTTP requests because Apache doesn't handle it well?)
