I assumed that he meant all ports, 10,000 is of the same order of
magnitude as the total number of ports (27000), but an absurdly high
figure for a real system.
Actually the total number of ports in the entire tree that support
options is only 1447. And out of 821 ports installed on my KDE desktop
machine only 140 do.
The idea that anyone ever has to configure 10,000 ports is nonsense.
