Engine: Socket limit?

A forum user has an interesting use case involving sockets on a server 
that needs to handle thousands of connections:

https://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=32515#p179090

He's discovered that livecode/engine/src/opensslsocket.cpp sets a limit 
on sockets size to 16 bits.

He's wondering if it could be raised to 32 bits.

Anyone here know why this limit exists, or know of reasons that might 
make it difficult to change?
