Virtually nobody is releasing source code for high-performance TCP
network servers where the socket STAYS OPEN for extended periods of
time. There are web servers which support HTTP 1.1 keepalive, but
that's not quite the same thing. I've found many clients which do
this, but no servers to speak of. I don't think I'm smart enough to
design one, so I'm just sort of faking it. ;)
