Just as a data point, this should become less of a problem as event-
loop based HTTP implementations become more popular; with them, the
number of connections you can hold open is only practically limited
by available memory (to keep fairly small amounts of connection-
specific state). This technique can allow tens to hundreds of
thousands of concurrent connections, leading to multi-hour HTTP
connections (if both sides want them).

connection open for 5 minutes without having to re-initialize...
