Ya, it's a fine line.  I tend to think Catalyst's job is to handle a request
and return the response as soon as possible and then move on to serve
another request.  But, if you have processes to spare then why not use them?

Might need to think about other things like how a long running process might
effect the need to restart the sever, etc.  Job queues are nice.
