What's the limit on files exported?

   I'm looking at adding SMB to a huge disk farm currently
shared out via NFS, and winder if there is any smbd-wide
limit to how many files can be shared.
   In principle, any individual smbd can share out
some large but finite number, whic hwe can call X,
and I can compute how many smbds my server can support, so the
answer is something like
	X * number of smbds.
  But what is X, and are there any other limits that
I'm not considering?
