why not? Even when using the Begin\End API, a generational GC could get rid
of all the garbage this API creates during the fast gen 0 collections (at
least this is what happens with Microsoft's GC on Windows).

My point is that two things prevent writing a high-performance server in
1. The current Begin\End async socket API (you call it 1.1) that creates
lots of garbage
2. The current GC that cannot handle all this garbage

Fix even one of the two (by properly implementing the 2.0 SP1 XXXAsync API
to eliminate garbage, or implement a generational GC) and you fixed the
problem. But better fix both... :)
