Maximum Number of Clients

I have a use case in which I need about 400 clients to access a single X server.  I modified the Xserver/include/misc.h to increase the MAXCLIENTS from 256 to 512, but it still isn't working.  I suspect that the next issue is in X11/Xpoll.h due to the bit handling within that file that seems limited to 8 bits.  Can anyone confirm whether I am on the right track, and whether modifiying this file to handle 9 bits of file descriptors will be sufficient to solve my problem?
