Thus limiting your #simultaneous connections to the number of threads in
your thread pool. You can do better by doing all the parsing, request
splitting, etc. in a async-using main acceptor thread and handing off
smaller bits of work to the threads in the pool. That way you can
exploit the fact that some threads may finish some parts of a given
request early, and may be available to serve other connections.
