I recently found a limit, the hard way, but of a different kind - the 
loop module comes restricted to 8 loop devices, it must be increased 
with "options loop max_loop=<1-255>" in modprobe.conf (and then reload 
the module, which means shutting down all vm's, so it's better to do 
this as soon as possible).

Just so that nobody mistakes this with some other kind of limit :)
