The main problem I had in my tests was that the scan dwell time was not
long enough to be able to receive and process all the Probe Response
frames on a single channel.. ;-)  Other than that, I would expect the
current development snapshot to be able to handle 10000 BSSes in scan
results. Would be interesting to hear how that goes with real APs rather
than simulated setup, though.
