What's the timeout value?  I'd say, "Spawn a keep alive thread" but that 
might involve a client change.  Either way, if your server is 
sufficiently fast, we're talking about a 6 second load time versus a 2 
second load time + 2 seconds of every other server dropping half their 
packets.  It should be configurable.  The server administrator should be 
able to set this option as he sees fit.  I want to make this call.
