Yes, this has been written from the very beginning. And this problem
has been fixed in the code already. New releases (i.e. the first that
is offically released for end-users) will behave properly.

This is done. But the order of magnitude for keeping connections open
is seconds, whereas handling the actual request is a matter of
Also I wrote previously that the keepalive timeout was already
adjusted to nullify the impact that the beta-users did have.

So all is fine. LO will behave properly, and the server will not
collapse because of that. Even if it was not fixed in LO, the server
could have been configured to ignore any keepalive requests.

But as I wrote all that already: time to move over to other stuff,
this topic is solved in my opinion already.
