I think the interesting thing is that those 1000 concurrent requests can 
be handled by code that is written to do blocking operations without 
having to resort to writing asynchronous code. It may be that the 
handling of these requests will "fan out" where the work in the handler 
splits into several sub-tasks and each sub-task running in its own 
virtual thread. In that scenario there will be a lot more threads.
