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.
