Yeah, I read that paper last night and I believe flood can simulate
the S-Client under the following syntax:

<usefarmer count="10000" startdelay="1" startcount="2">Joe</usefarmer>

Flood will start two threads every second until there are 10000 active.
I suppose we could make it open-ended, but that complicates things.  
We could also make the resolution of the XML more precise (i.e. .5 
seconds), but Aaron and I disagreed on how to do this.  =)

In order to do the S-Client as described, you must have two processes 
with a domain socket and use event-based socket operations.  I don't 
feel that is very portable or scalable.  However, their idea of
continuing to ramp up the requests regardless of the server's response
time does make sense.  -- justin
