I agree. I see no reason for multiple threads working on the same request at
the same time (at least handler wise). On the other side it may be interesting
to develop async handlers that wait for external events like a post body or a database
response and that might want to free the thread until this event happens.
The same may be interesting for filters.
So it should be possible for a request to move over to a different thread,
but not more than one thread should be working on the same request at the
same time.
