Although it's probably too early to assert it's 100% done and fine [most
likely not], the biggest chunk of the current stability / improvements /
refactorings round to endpoints that started with 9.0.15 is now done. Nice !

All connectors have the async NIO2 style IO API available, NIO performs a
lot better with it than I expected (and it's stable), APR otoh fared worse
given all its missing features. This API is available to protocol handlers
and internal upgrade handlers. Looking ahead, if the Servlet API adds
(real) async IO of some sort (leaving behind IS/OS container managed
buffered IO), then this would be a good backend for it.
