We've had problems with shutdown, but the advantages of native over mit
threads more than makes up for it. Mainly the use of a UNIX socket for
local connects vs. the overhead of TCP-IP under mit's lib.
If you're primarily doing web work thru local connects, I'd recommend
you go with native threads.
