I'm hoping this is the the right location for this question....

I've been working with some developers that are desiring to use the
multiplexing capabilities of OpenSSH, but have hit the default limit of
10. I've seen some discussions of increasing this default limit
previously and have noticed that some of the Linux distros have
increased the number to 64; I'm curious of the impact. The developers
that I'm working with have discussed approx 90'ish slave processes using
the master ssh process, so I've been thinking about using 128 for
possible furture increases by this group.
