As I'm sure that this is the most common thing that people build new
images for, it might make sense to offer images built with different
limits (at least for the generic pc platform) from the download page.

As long as it is made clear that the higher limit will cause more
memory to be consumed, it could be very useful to people who know they
will need that many PPTP connections.

When I was setting up a m0n0 router for an important client, the
static PPTP limit was the biggest concern they (and my coworkers) had.
They were satisfied that we could build our own image with an
increased limit if we had to, but how many people don't bother looking
that deep?
