At ISI we run a TOPS-20 mail receiver that uses separate subprocesses
to receive mail on multiple simultaneous connections. The number of
subprocesses is limited to 5, and a status program displays the number
of subprocesses active plus the max which were ever needed simultaneously.

Typical behavior is 0-3 subprocesses with open connections at any time,
and it's a rare day which never sees a need for all 5.
