Comment (by unsalkorkmaz):

 The limit of sublevel-directories is 31998 due to the link count limit.

 Most of wordpress installs are on linux and using ext2 or ext3 filesystem
 if i am not wrong. Basically yes, there is still 32k limit per directory.
 This is why wp have date based splitting imo.

 What i suggest? most of people dont need a change for it but some sites
 that expecting more then 32k member will have problems. As i found a
 solution for blogs.dir directory sharding in
 i suggest to let define 'AVATARUPLOADDIR' or something. So people can
 split it to support more then 32k.
