udpsend – what is the maximum size for "maxpacketsize" etc.

I’m sending OSC via udpsend, and wondering if there are recommended maximum and minumum limits for maxqueusize and maxpacketsize.

The help file tells us that the default for queue size is 512, and packesize is 4096, but if you needed something larger – is there a limit to how big these values can be?

UDP packet size is stored in a 16-bit field. So the max value would be 65536.
