[erlang-questions] Maximum number of children for simple_one_for_one supervisor?

Just want to add another detail is that the children will be transient, and
only be restarted when crashed. Other than that, the supervisor does not
need to do anything, besides providing the children info.

Each children process' weight is mainly determined by the data contained in
the handlers the process is added. Some may only have few handlers with
small state data, while other may be doing heavy computation.

Looking at Dmitry's numbers, it may be preferable to split those processes
into zones to be managed by different supervisors. Maybe adding more
supervison layers on top of it.
