A lot.  Indy 9's architecture does not support that kind of threading.  Indy
10, on the other hand, does support advanced threading architectures.  Such
as fibers, which essentially allow a single thread to run multiple tasks (In
Indy's case, multiple connections).  Unfortunately, fibers are only
available under Windows.  I don't think Indy has any such offerings for
Linux.
