So any decent epoll implementation should let us hit that without a
super optimised server - eventlet being in that category. I totally
get that we're going to expect thundering herds, but websockets isn't
new and the stacks we have - apache, eventlet - have been around long
enough to adjust to the rather different scaling pattern.

So - lets not panic, get a proof of concept up somewhere and then run
an actual baseline test. If thats shockingly bad *then* lets panic.
