Yeah, see my mea culpa followup. I had misinterpreted as "total writers ever" as opposed to "total concurrent writers". I'm curious why they chose "long" for the count though. Seems like even a fairly beefy 64-bit box might find (231-1) active file descriptors a bit challenging, let alone (263-1) on machines where sizeof(long)==8. :-)
