True, and that's the relationship between the slaves
and the master... basically, the idea is that the slaves
will never interact w/ the network but only w/ the master.
Saying the a request's conn_rec will *always* be a slave
could provide some useful isolation. In a sense, it
moves the "master" connection more inner to core.

Of course, I have no idea how far this can go until
it takes too much effort and complexity to maintain
this master/slave concept. It did seem to help w/
mod_spdy and that's why I started in that direction...
