Unless we get a reference that says we can safely assume a limit 
> 4096, I'd rather use this as a limit in every case. I don't really
feel like supporting a comprehensive list of OSs with their limits.

Known OSs Ant is being used on (there've been users reporting success
here) include Mac OS, OS/2 and AS/400 as well as a whole bunch of
other Unices (apart from AIX). I'm still waiting for the first user to
tell us she's using Ant on OpenVMS successfully.
