No... just that given the choice between testing a constant 1 and the

If you want to test HARD_SERVER_LIMIT == 1 at startup, that's cool.  Simply,
if there were ever a bug in the HARD_SERVER_LIMIT macro on Netware, you want
your MPM to share the same bugs as any 3rd party modules that also try to
use it.  Essentially, by using HARD_SERVER_LIMIT instead of the const 1 value,
you are putting another brick in the way of another bug breaking out of
the project :)
