There is not yet any fix in trunk for the delayed closing of files when 
using HTTP KeepAlive (a pool lifecycle issue).

I'm not sure whether that is a show stopper for an alpha, but RĂ¼diger 
had the intention of trying to fix it.


It's a problem specific to trunk. You'll quickly run into out of file 
descriptors whenever concurrency times KeepAliveRequests is bigger than 
the allowed number of FDs (content files are only closed at the end of 
the connection instead of end of request).
