I agree that it is a large issue with the implementation. But, it is not
clear to me that the SBP-2 is required to handle multiple logins or
connections. Who cases multiple connections per a single login? I think we
should be able to handle multiple connection on a single login or multiple
logins. These implementations are very different.

Thanks,

Whether we multiplex connections over a login or have separate
logins, each service is accessed over a connection, and each
connection requires flow control and send/receive queues.
This is a non-issue in the decision.

A larger issue with "current PC OS" implementation may be how
many outstanding requests can be supported at once by the SBP-2
driver.
