Oh? The cooperative multi-tasking model is particularly 
well suited to web services. 

If you were a TCP/IP expert and kernel hacker,
you could easily make a totally scalable web server.
Currently, Unix sheduling kills servers around
100K connections. My Linux box can handle 1 million 
Felix threads no worries :D

All that is needed is to hook all the traffic on port 80,
eliminating the major bottleneck -- sockets.
