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.
