I suggest that we use twice the size of the largest limit (8192) for the DoS fix and reduce it to 2048 for Python 3.4. 8192 is still a small number for modern computers.

I also like to see comments next to the limit that explain on what grounds we have chosen the value. For example

# vfstpd has a limit of 4096 (
# pyftpdlib has a limit of 2048
