Exactly; this could not be keyed.  Not without additional data and
additional cross-thread+cross-proc locking semantics.

If we can tolerate a 'soft limit' then simply memcmp'ing the client
of scoreboard slot might be more efficient than the whole locking
and db access overhead, at least for cases of ~500 clients or less.
To get a hard and fast limit, locking is required.
