I guess it would indeed wait until one of the first 3 threads has closed
it's connection, or a timeout occurs. But you ought to test it, just to
make sure. . With a little statistics usage, you would be able to create
new threads on the fly if many connections are established in a short
time, releasing the threads when idle for x seconds. . This would allow
you to use more resources when needed, and releasing them when done.
I don't have any knowledge of pocket pc's, but is there any way you can
use twisted? I've read/heared it's master using only a single thread. .
