No and yes.
It seems a bit archaic these days to assume a given number of FDs/user,
given the assortment of types of users. [For the UNaware]: maxusers
sets the array sizes of quite a few system tables.
This could probably be avoided by dictating that those would be minima,
and that they could be dynamically increased as needed.
