About the number of files in a directory with FSFS filesystem

It seems that FSFS stores revision data in repos/db/revprops
directory, by one-revision-one-file manner.

In the manner, if we have a large-revision-repository, there will be
many files in the directory.

Many filesystems have the limitation on the numbers of files in
a directory.
(for example, in FAT32, 65534 or 65535 files. But I think the number
of files which can be used pratically are less than that)

How do you think this problem ?
