What's more, the amount of content you'd be able to shift over that number
of connections and the overall performance would be pretty shocking. If
you're dealing with that many connections, you should be clustering. In
fact, even for 75k, I would suggest clustering your the app over a couple of
servers anyway.

That reminds me - it's a long time since I last looked into -cluster. :-)
