I wasn't referring to idle connections.....

Imagine you have 3 requests to host A.  If all requests take a long time to
complete, then one of the requests will be delayed.  However, if that third
request is marked as not opening a persistent connection, then there is no
reason for the browser to delay issuing the request (i.e., opening a new
connection is ok).

By setting a "connection: close" request header, the request is indicating that
the connection should not be made persistent.  This is documented in RFC 2616.
