This is still something that have to be tested to see what works best.
Managing the work with the listen() backlog instead of Medusa's request
queue has the benefit of being less resource intensive (Medusa doesn't
have to do anything).  If Zope is behind a HTTP accelerator/surrogate or
load balancer, the surrogate's connect() should fail if the listen queue
is full, and it may return 503 anyways (not tested).

In the end, the most important point is to put an upper bound on the
request backlog (and therefore the response time).
