The people doing this commercially under Linux/FreeBSD, and have mods
to do higher PPS in certain conditions, generally don't talk (much.)

A few FreeBSD developers are pushing forward with higher PPS improvements.
If this is inline with what you want, then I suggest talking to them and
seeing how they can help.

Migrating to a superior platform (where "superior" here is "does what
I want better" isn't a -bad- idea. :)
