The allocator will always have a range limit, I hardly see this as a
strong reason why not to. The admin must be wise in choosing ranges
sizes anyway.

If you use both tdb and ad modules you have to assign ranges to them
too. If you are unwise you may end up consuming one of the two ranges.
It doesn't matter which one is depleted if you make a bad choice you
make a bad choice.




now if you do more than 5k allocs you are out of luck, there is no easy
way around it. And changing all the mappings in AD to make more room is
not easier than coping with a configuration where you have multiple
range allocations.
