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.
