Good point. My code is already able to use multiple network threads,
and I have done what you suggest in the past.

But I'm interested in pushing the state of the art here,
and want to see if Linux can handle it with just a single
network thread. (My server has enough non-network threads to
keep multiple CPUs busy, don't worry :-)
