That's certainly not the case. One of the more popular things to do  
in a webapp is talk to a database. Most such accesses are done in a  
blocking fashion. Doing blocking database access in an asynchronous  
server's event loop is a pretty poor idea. I mean, sure, it'd  
probably "work", but your performance would be terrible...
