Slowloris made waves nearly a decade ago, and there are still
people being misled into using the wrong reverse proxy for
unicorn.  Maybe these new standalone Rack apps can convince
folks to deploy unicorn correctly behind nginx, or better,
evaluate alternatives to nginx :>

Thus ddstream and readinput can help users evaluate
fully-buffering reverse proxies such as nginx, or similar :>

Finally, uconnect is intended to evaluate removal of the kgio
dependency (and maybe future speedups)

This is intended to demonstrate how badly we suck at dealing
with slow clients.  It can help users evaluate alternative
fully-buffering reverse proxies, because nginx should not
be the only option.

Update the benchmark README while we're at it
