Hm, yes, this almost seems analogous to the question of "how many things are you juggling at a time" vs "how many things do you have in your hand when you're juggling N things".

As to the c10k question: it's not a question I'd thought about -- it's still a form of multithreading, isn't it? Only one thing happens at once, but context-switching between threads, even if they're not formally labelled as threads, say, as green threads, 'coroutines', or even just handler contexts, can occur. It seems like "multiplexing" might even be an appropriate term to use, analogously to the use in signal transmission.
