Not on the number of components.  It's advisable to keep each component
less than the maximum value of an int on the server, however.  While
much of the code treats them as strings to allow arbitrarily large
values, there are a few places where they are (erroneously, in my
opinion) converted to integers.  That value is guaranteed to be at least
65535 and is frequently 2147483647 or larger.
