Yes I meant connector, of course, not container.

Interesting.  Well... one day when I have time to do it I will do some
benchmarks on it to see what the real-world difference is.  It may very
well be that _none_ of this matters; even an inefficient Java (or perl
or whatever) program can probably fill up a machine's WAN bandwidth
quite easily on modern hardware.  CPU/$ has improved vastly faster than
WAN/$ over the past few years so maybe conserving CPU is silly now.
