Description

Can the maximum number of servers per config file be increased to 256?
The default is 64, which may not be enough for some users as many paid VPN services have more than 64 servers and some users would like to be able to pick a random server.

"may"?

Is there a specific example of a VPN service that is exceeding this?

Yes.
OctaneVPN have over 100 hostnames: http://www.octanevpn.com/server-locations.html
NordVPN have over 400: https://nordvpn.com/servers/
ExpressVPN have at least 94 hostnames: https://www.expressvpn.com/vpn-server#locations

Providers tend to have at minimum 1 hostname per country they provide servers in.
These are just a few of the ones that have the lists public.

It's a simple enough request.
