Well, from reading about VolanoMark, I seem to remember that Java
doesn't have non-blocking I/O operations, which means you need one
or two threads per network connection. If that's true, then in Java,
in some cases, using threads willy-nilly isn't just a good idea ---
it's the law!
See also the Tera MTA. There's an explanation at

royally. More detailed papers might be available at
