Well, firstly if you write socket code the way its supposed to be
written it will attempt to recover, or gracefully abort. Sockets
aren't reliable.

Secondly, most of your threads probably won't be using external
resources, and shouldn't be affected.

Thirdly, its simpler, compare GC vs malloc/free.
