Comment (by neel):

 I am still interested in this ticket.

 I noticed the following options in `connection_check_oos()`:


 It seems that the threshold is determined from these values. Should I
 modify these values directly should my proposed option (connection limit)
 be set, and calculates a threshold based on the set value rather than the
 number of file descriptors?

 Or should I add new values to the `or_options_t` structure, fill them if
 my proposed option is set, and make `connection_check_oos()` use the new
 options instead if the proposed option is set.

 I prefer the former as it is far simpler, since the latter adds some
 complexity but the latter is also less destructive.

 Which approach do you prefer?
