With Windows overlapped I/O I think you can get substantially better
throughput by starting many AcceptEx() calls in parallel. (For bonus
points you can also recycle the accepted connections using DisconnectEx().)
Even so, Windows socket code always seems to be much slower than the
equivalent on Linux.
