Well, I am kinda busy putting the final touches on the latest mod_snake
release. I may get to it though. ;-)
What I am referring to, with persistant connections, is one between the
adaptor and the appserver. I.e. right now mod_snake initiates a new socket
connection to the appserver everytime a request is made. The accept() call,
etc. is kinda expensive. By keeping a queue of available sockets, the
mod_snake adapter could reuse some for new requests.
