It's doable. But you would have to download the code first (sorry).

Excuse me, for somebody who hasn't bothered to download let alone
understand the code, perhaps you are a little presumptuous about
the PITA factor? You know you're talking about my code here, I

While were waiting for Mr. O'Donohue to explain connection management
in a hybrid multi-thread/multi-process server, perhaps you could
