We should restore previous connections-per-host limit for non-http(s) hosts
The change in r46039 to restrict even file urls without exception has broken other WebKit apps, including Adobe's installer (<rdar://problem/7091659>)

No layout test, as we haven't yet figured out how reproducibly stress the loader in a reliable and predictable manner to test this class of bug.

Does the non-named host limit ever do any good at all? Maybe we should remove the limit entirely for non-named hosts.
Thanks for the review!
The answer to your question is answered by a comment where the hard-coded limit of 20 is established for non-named hosts:
// Having a limit might still help getting more important resources first
...which, of course, was the original motivation for the limits in the first place.
It's unclear how much of a benefit this limit might be, but it is clear that there is theoretically a benefit.
