i agree that many people have individually gone over the same things over
and over, to find the best way to do something.

however, it is a chicken-and-egg type problem --
imho, you cannot get the knowledge to know what works best, until you've
experimented, and found the best way.

a HOWTO document could only generalize. there's nothing stopping a
badly-written event-driven model or threaded model performing worse than
that of straight fork()/exec() type stuff.
