But that means it is possible that the server cannot catch up for long
periods.  And that just having a large number of otherwise friendly
clients can cause their socket buffers to fill up.  And things are
worse on systems with more cores.

What is the advantage to having the impacted clients grow their send
buffers while waiting?  They wait either way.
