Yes, we discuss it few times. 

For HTTP it won't give us too much, even if we do pool() we still need
to use the same thread model. But for the JK2 connector I believe using 
direct buffers would give us a nice performance gain, and I'm working 
on this. 

Direct buffers are IMHO the most important aspect of NIO, it provides a
much better way to communicate between java and C.
