...and I remember writing up a long report on this at the time. I'd
have to dig it up again, but I seem to remember that single-threading
was the issue that would kill using revServer this way. You either
have a single thread per user application, blocking, and no variable
persistence (no fastCGI) or you have shared persistent variables and a
single engine instance with multiple users in the same memory space
