Like I touched on in my last post, this is the strategy that Erlang
takes, right? (They seem to have the concurrency problem solved.)
My immediate interest here is mainly lower memory consumption. The
server (read - dirt cheap PC) I just bought "only" has 1GB RAM, and
will only hold 2GB. Simply because I can't afford to go and buy
anything bigger right now, I'd like to know I don't have to waste RAM
running a shedload of 50-200MB processes.

True. Lycanthropy is not conducive to good software development.
