:The socket limit has me worried.  I can't think of a clean way to get

:Anyone got around this, or know of a project which has tried?

It's expensive, but you could use extra processes, whose sole purpose is
to have lots of sockets open. They would then forward the message, tagged
as to who it came from, to the main server socket[s]. The server could
write all data to a single connectionless socket, or forward it through
the extra processes.
