Well, arguably, we shouldn't necessarily have defaults that use window
scaling, or we should have ways to recognize automatically when it
doesn't work (which may not be possible).

It's not like there aren't broken boxes out there, and it might be better
to make the default buffer sizes just be low enough that window scaling
simply isn't an issue.

I suspect that the people who really want/need window scaling know about
it, and could be assumed to know enough to raise their limits, no?
