Well since I believe it has to map a port number to each connection,
the limit with a single public IP would be 65,535. (the max number of
ports it could possibly use)

You'll hit the state table limit in m0n0wall way before that, which I
believe is compiled in right now at 4,000 simultanous sessions (IIRC).
