[sword-devel] Reliability of Sword again (Sword Server)

Developing Sword Server I realized that if a wrong module can cause libSword 
to hang then I need a process for every connection to make one connection 
unhangable by other ones! Otherwise I can use something faster than processes 
like threads, asynchronous i/o etc.

Moreover if it is possible to hang libSword by a wrong data, then I need a 
process which will be busy killing hanged server processes to not cause many 
hanged processes hanging around.

So what is the current degree of stability of Sword in respect of the wrong 
input data?
