This used to be my favorite idea and someone talked me out of it... I
don't remember who know, so maybe it's my favorite idea again. :-)

I was trying to figure out once - is there a minimum number of threads
mandated in the standard?  i.e. that all implementations must support
at least 128 threads or something?  I keep wondering if
one-thread-per-player, which has some very nice benefits, is worth the
performance cost.  (The other end of the spectrum being a Squid-like
design of a single thread that never, ever blocks for any reason --
even asynch I/O)
