Microsoft re-built their XMLHTTP library so that servers wouldn't be using
the Internet Explorer HTTP classes as a foundation. While those work well
for client use, they weren't intended to have 10,000 simultaneous
connections, and have lots of features (and overhead) servers don't need.
The ServerXMLHTTP classes (if I got that right) use a smaller foundation
that lets them manage a lot more simultaneous connections. If I remember
correctly, it only works on Windows 2000, but it does seem to work really
well. Simple XML messaging with them is pretty easy stuff!
