Description (last modified by nickm)

The discussion at http://archives.seul.org/or/dev/Jul-2010/msg00021.html deals with how best to solve the problem of keeping data from different applications on different circuits.

We could improve the situation pretty cheaply by allowing ports in the LongLivedPorts directive to get circuits for their own exclusive use. In other words, implement the original proposal at the above link (enforcing separate circuits per port) but apply it where it's needed most and least capable of causing lots of extra circuit-building.

I think this is a fine extension but I am fairly certain that it would serve as a stop gap, rather than a solution full stop.

I'm going to close this as superseded by proposal 171, which is a much better solution than overloading longlivedports.
