Why will the server top out? We set our browser advertised
MAX_CONCURRENT_STREAMS limit to 1000:
https://code.google.com/p/chromium/codesearch#chromium/src/net/spdy/spdy_session.h&sq=package:chromium&rcl=1367246521&l=49.
What receiver of push streams is going to have a low limit? Or are you
worried that it'll want to push more than 1000 streams in a roundtrip?
