This is the problem: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=192385

If all users opens hundreds (or even thousands) of sockets each time
they use our tool, I think there is a high risk that many servers reach
a limit where they start refusing connections before the tool has
completed its task.

I compare with CVS where only one connection is established between the
client and the server and all commands reuse that single connection. I
have no idea how the client/server protocol is set up in SVN but if each
command opens a socket of its own, then I might have a big problem. We
potentially execute thousands of such commands in a fairly short time frame.
