[Rd] MAX_NUM_DLLS too low ?

My problem is that I hit the hard-coded MAX_NUM_DLLS (100) limit of the
number of loaded DLLs.
I have a number of custom packages which interface and integrate a lot of
CRAN and Bioconductor packages.

For example, on my installation:
 Rscript -e 'library(crlmm);print(length(getLoadedDLLs()))'
gives 28 loaded DLLs.

I am currently trying to work-around that by putting external packages in
Suggests: instead of Imports:, and lazy-load them, but still I am wondering
if that threshold value of 100 is still relevant nowadays, or would it be
possible to increase it.
