    Start more then 1 UDP server thread. I did this by slight improvement · 1a135678

    of my really icky code to start different kinds of servers; basically
    you can set the number of servers of each kind, and if a server of
    that type exits, another one of the same type is started. The code is
    a little easier to follow then it was before, but still quite yucky.
    
    So whats the "right" way? The problem is that if multiple children are
    selecting on a set of fd's and an fd comes ready, all of the children
    are woken up. This is called a "select storm" since they all wake up,
    try to read from the same fd, and all but one go right back to sleep.
    Lots of overhead, and programs like apache go to great lengths to
    avoid it. Takes a lot code, lots of bookkeeping, lots of goo that is
    hard to understand 6 months later. Not worth it for tmcd, at least not
    yet. If we start creating many 1000s node experiments, that could
    change in a hurry.
