It could be multiple people, yes.

Or a buggy client. Anybody could write a ui. Of course one could argue that ui 
bugs are not the responsibility of alfsd. They could bring a system down to 
its knees. I wouldn't be impressed if somebody running his alfs ui to upgrade 
the LFS server causes the LFS server itself to grind to a halt. It would not 
be a problem for alfsd to only accept one active connection. It's an easy to 
implement feature and could prevent a lot of issues.
