And 76 endpoints, which seems pathological.  If you are operating at
this scale, the number of threads is the least of your problems.  A
modern OS can handle thousands of threads without sweat.  The real
problem is managing that many endpoints, and a topology that needs to
know about them.  Device multiplexing and reactors don't solve that in
any way.
