No. This is what the *server* should do, not the *handler*. The server  
listens on incoming requests, and creates a new handler for each one.  
Inside a handler, you don't have to worry about multiple connections.
If you want to process simultaneous connections, inherit your server from  
ThreadingMixIn or ForkingMixIn (or use one of the predefined server  
classes).
