it's feasable to fix client libraries accordingly, there's nothing
standing in the way of a rogue client trying to bog down the server.
We will add a firewall rule, just to be sure that one client can't
connect more than say once per second, but in general it would be a
useful addition to the server itself to not return immediately.
