Well I think you're completely nuts :) For 10,000 concurrent requests for
*dynamic* data (or else you'd just be using Apache.. right?), you'd need a
server farm full of fancy equipment, a load-balancing server, and stuff that
even my wildly ignorant speculations can't conceive.

Besides, I don't think any single server with simple thread-per-request, 
blocking IO model can handle that sort of load. A smart fellow called Matt
Welsh did his PhD thesis on highly concurrent server apps, and the results of
his thinking are here:

In particular, the paper "The Staged Event-Driven Architecture for Highly 
Concurrent Servers." is well worth reading.

(who thinks 50 concurrent users is pushing things)
