I'm sorry, but your conclusion seems wrong. If a dispatcher thread
puts requests into a queue for worker threads to consume, it's most
definitely *not* a thread-per-connection design, but a thread pool.
It would be a thread-per-connection if threads were created
as a result of new connection requests being put into the queue. But
that he (apparently) isn't doing.
