Yep, only to select.select. Search around for FD_SETSIZE for more information.

But those may not be available consistently, so you shouldn't hard-code it to use one of those either :).

It circumvents the problem by allowing whatever mechanism Twisted is using for multiplexing, rather than always using select(). So you still have to select a reactor that actually supports more than FD_SETSIZE sockets.

Yes... ish. More detail here: <http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/1918>.
