Is there any plan of introducing such a soft limit?  CollabNet's QA
just hit this 1000 message limit today while excercising some edges
cases on a test box.  Our RPM would make it fairly easy to setup a
compile-time change of a #define, but if someone can recommend a more
forward-looking solution I would be willing to implement it.

                             Thanks, Dan
