I'm actually putting together something along these lines,
unfortunately I'm bound by NDA so I can't talk about it yet, but as
soon as I can, I'll be releasing some sort of detailed paper on it.

For high load situations, you're going to be better off by havving
that user handler mux connections into other connections to the
backend processors, and let the backend guys do the parsing of what
comes in and out.  More compartmentalization, and you don't have to
teach the user handlers how to deal with all the different things it'd
need to know to properly parse client input into stuff that's usable
by the MUD.
