For anyone who's interested, I am now quite happily serving large data 
sets via HTTP to thredds. The key was to re-write my java servlet in 
python. I think object creation overhead was killing me because of the 
sheer number of independant requests made by thredds. I used a default 
window size of 65,536 bytes, and was able to get 1.1Mb/s throughput 
downloading from thredds. My test file was 590Mb.

I like this approach, because my custom data source is neatly de-coupled 
from thredds code. All I have to do is deal with the HTTP protocol, and 
everything is handled for me.

If anyone else is having difficulty integrating a new data source into 
thredds, feel free to contact me for my code.

Thanks for everyone's help...

Cheers,
