I wonder what's the performance hit of having a thread per request. I liked everything I say, but yes, having a single threaded node removes a lot of overhead.

In ASP.NET, a thread pool is maintained to offset the cost of spinning up a new one. There is some default throttling that controls how quickly new pooled threads will be created, but this can be tuned if you expect sudden bursts of traffic. Not sure how Meteor does it.
