GOODS doesn't have a connection pool, and you would have to be very 
careful when writing one to get the semantics right, since connections 
are extremely stateful things in GOODS.  Much better would be to hack 
both client and server to allow multiple "connections" to be 
multiplexed over one actual TCP socket connection, but this requires 
diving into the goodsrv.cxx source, which may not appeal to everyone.

If the load isn't too heavy, however, you shouldn't even need to logout 
of GOODS - once the session has expired, the socket connection should 
get garbage collected and closed, and all the connection resources on 
both server and client will be released.  Obviously this isn't ideal, 
but it may work out in practice.
