Clicks? Or hits? Are you expecting peak loads of 10,000 HTTP  
requests / second? Just under a million hits a minute is a really  
huge amount of traffic.

Then you mention Win32. This is what I missed first time.

Are you intending to write something that runs both on *nix and  
Win32? If so that would imply that you don't have complete control  
over the deployment environment. Is that true?

I don't think 10k hits / minute is going to play well with that.  
Maybe I'm misreading your post.
