That's because the server has nothing to do with the client-side
implementation, where the number is enforced. The server can serve as
many devices as you want, provided you have enough space in your process
table. The restriction you speak of is part of the kernel, which is not
implemented in what you can download from sourceforge, but instead in
the kernel.

Pavel is no longer involved with NBD; he gave up maintenance long ago.
The kernel side of things is implemented by Paul Clements, who I believe
is subscribed to this mailinglist, too.
