This is not generally true. Some web apps out there being hit very hard
are not implemented in C. Think of Apache and FastCGI/SCGI talking to
long-running apps via local socket or TCP/IP. The apps are often
implemented in so-called scripting languages. As always it depends on
the quality of the code.

I like the idea of back-sock.
