It isn't really a failing of Twisted, on non-sparc hardware it preforms
awesome! The SPARC hardware is the problem, and the T1000 / T2000 we have be
benchmarking just doesn't place nice with single threaded CPU bound apps.

We are going to try and replace Twisted with Apache 2.2.x and create a
module that does raw connection handliing, and go with the threaded mpm and
see how that preforms with the same test client harness we are benchmarking
with now.
