A lot of that stuff can probably be removed - there's a lot of cleanup I
haven't gotten around to yet.  I wrote a lot of hacky code when I was
first getting this to work; I was under the (mistaken) impression that
each worker process needed its own socket, and they were created late
on, during processor startup.  Now that each ServerEnvironment has a
socket that's created early on, there shouldn't be as much need for all
this keeping-tabs-on-everything code.  Hopefully...
