Do you know if FastCGI proxy accepts a multi-thread structure? I got this
question after I did a test on nginx and Apache. I put a processing in a
thread, and even then the server was waiting for the end of the first
processing. =/

It's interesting we check it, because if they do not support multi-threaded
implementations, we would have unnecessary work.

To support threading requires a major rework of the fastcgi implementation,

I'll test my drafts this weekend. I'm very interested in this feature, so
now it is priority in my test list. =)
