    I'm curious, why? Admittedly I'm a fan of long listen queues because I've
    seen enough performance problems solved just by increasing the listen

    And if you don't have source, my two favourite tricks are to hack a shared
    lib, or to just hack the kernel itself. I've done both now to work around
