It was not meant to be arbitrary but it's now exceedingly low for modern
systems.  It's supposed to represent the size of your operating system's
maximum socket buffer, or more correctly, the maximum amount CircleMUD is
guaranteed to be able to write to a socket when your operating system says
the socket is available for writing from select().  On Linux this can be at
least 1/2 of /proc/sys/net/core/wmem_default, up to 1/2 of

Since the process_output() changes in late, late 3.0bpl series, I think it
is now arbitrary.
