can I let all winbindd processes accept connections like nginx does

Hi list,

I'm using samba3.6.12.
I find that seems only the parent winbindd process can accept connections, and it dispatches connections to his child.
besides it only dispatches connections to the completely idle child(find_idle_child).

AFAIK, nginx lets all its processes to accept connections, so it has a good performance.
I'm wondering can I modify some winbindd code to let all winbindd processes to accept connections and then handles the request.
If it is possible, I think I can get a better performance winbindd.

I want to do this because I'm doing NTLM authentication using winbindd and I found winbindd's performance doesn't meet my requirement.
I expect more than 1000 authentication transaction per second.

so, can anybody give me some guide on this and tell me whether my plan is practicable.

Thanks! really appreciate any help!
