It was more a thought. I don't know how much of an issue it actually
is (the resource usage as opposed to the actually max connections). I
think we need to get some real world data to see whether its worth
spending the time. I suspect the fact it loads the whole file into
memory to send would send the resources through the roof if there's
lots of connections but it may be quicker/easier to implement an
incremental load as mentioned by Charles than connection management
but then I didn't code it so would be just guessing.
