Hi August

There's actually only one TCP connection per client, but _within_ that
connection there are two document streams (one for client->server and
the other for server->client traffic).

I've not looked at it in a while, but jer did some work under the "WCS"
umbrella that allowed a stateless connection, the conversational elements
of which were carried via XML-RPC. Perhaps there's mileage in this.

There are a number of projects past and present whose purposes have been
to address areas of scalability; one current one, from the jabber.com stable,
is CCM (client connection manager). But I'll let someone else expand on 
that :-)
