        Somehow I always thought there were more than 50 people who are
"really running" current.  We do stress test it though and it had
performed flawlessly over the past 8 years.  Question though, does anyone
happen to know what the largest maxusers variable is that one can define
in the kernel config file?  We have it at 512 but what's the highest
number people have used reliably?  Thanks.
