gettimeofday(&start_tv, NULL);

This means that it's spending a lot of time getting the current time over
and over again... (Duane specifically tried to avoid this by using
a variable containing the current time (I think to the second or when
the last connection was made - my memory fails me) that functions can use
instead of doing hundreds of system calls...(which do slow things down...)

If anything it should be a config option - and not even call the
functions if it's not in the options... (don't call the function, figure
it's not in the option list and then immediately return...)
