using apache as an example, if the maximum number of servers (threads) is 
reached, then requests are queued for X amount of time in the hopes that a 
server comes free to handle the request... if a server does not come free within 
X amount of time, then that request is dropped in the bitbucket...

i think that the queue (bucket?) also has a limit on the number of requests that 
it will hold and if this is reached, then in FIFO fashion, the first in is 
dumped since it is also the oldest...
