Would someone please explain the ramifications of this?
If I have a 2-user license and I configure the kernel
with MAXUSERS=8, it would apper to me that I have violated
the terms of the license. But will it work? I.e., is
there any technical lock-out of the additional users?

Boy, yet another reason to stay with SunOS 4.1.3 forever.
This Solaris nonsense just looks worse and worse.... kind
of like Clinton.
