Right, but the whole point of the AIO approach is that it can do the comms 
back to the front-end asynchronously itself - i.e. it already has the key 
thing that makes perlbal/lighty/etc. scalable built into itself. So we want to 
take advantage of that, probably by setting it up so as soon as finalize_body 
is called the response can be handed back to Axkit2 in full and the Catalyst 
process can go on to serving another request.
