Hi Mads,

You're right about the interface; but as Antoine pointed out, for now you
can just use a thread for each connection.

I do hope to at some point have a more rich interface for IO; I'm definitely
looking to adopt Michael's TLS enumerator client interface (see the excellent
http-enumerator package), but for the server I haven't really though about it
