[erlang-questions] large Erlang clusters

Does any one have experience running somewhere between 200 and 400 nodes 
in production?  I recall that Erlang distributed layer had a limit of 
256 nodes.  Is it still the case?

I suppose that partitioning the cluster in several global_groups should 
limit the network load and the number of open file descriptors on each 
node would be reduced.

Are there any other concerns one should be aware of when working with 
such large clusters.
