I have some experience in serving gigabits from erlang node, so I can
say that {active,once} in TCP has one big problem: you cannot say to
driver "don't bother me each 1548 bytes, collect 2 megabytes and send
them to me at once".

Usually you have to choose: either small latency, either high
throughput.  Saying {active, once, 1024*1024} will be a great way to
make webserver better.
