Hey all,

    Im not sure if this is the appropriate place to ask this question 
(so if it isnt forgive me) but i am wondering what the maximum number of 
torrents that can be safely seeded using the btlaunchmany.py script? Are 
we talking thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions, or "unlimited"? I 
am looking at integrating this script in an automated file generation 
process to serve up torrents automatically and id like to know if im 
going to run into issues after a while by using it (after looking at the 
source the fact that it uses python threads concerns me that maybe after 
a few thousand files are being served that issues would arise due to the 
threads fighting over the Python GIL).
