[Twisted-Python] Maximum sockets open

A while ago, we were opening up a ton of sockets and got a "Too many 
files open" error. I don't know what you're getting, but if that's it, 
you might try (1) opening fewer sockets, (2) upping operating system 
limit (Twisted doesn't control that).

According to our admin, on Linux, that would be /proc/sys/fs/file-max 
and use "sysctl -w 'fs.file-max=<new limit>'" to up the limit.
