Sure.. I will definitely keep a close tab on HttpCore/NIO extensions and 
look forward to the changes

I think some kind of throttling logic maybe able to help limit the 
connections accepted/memory usage like the thread pools limit the cpu 
exhaustion and overheads

I am not an an expert in this space.. but would love to contribute any 
code we develop if it is useful to someone. Also with your upcoming 
changes to HttpCore/NIO, I think it would be possible for us to merge 
back in someday soon .. so that we both benefit...
