actually it is a matter of configuration. You can restrict how many
contacts a user can register (see registrar module, max_contacts
Also, starting with 1.2.0, openser has a new design for reloading the
contacts at startup - this prevents memory exhaustion (whatever number
of contacts you have) and avoid server unavailability because of reload.
