The problem is which pain do you want; single-connection contention over
a lock to a IP resource counter which may bottleneck, or multiple thread
or cpu examination of the scoreboard.  Presuming the score never swaps,
and is frequently queried, I'm speculating that this approach is more
robust.  As far as niq's "already too late" comment, if N+x requests will
sink the server, where x is the number of CPU's which may be constructing
new scoreboard slots, then N was already set too high.
