I've only briefly looked over the code. What's with the 7900 magic
number here?

       stdnse.print_debug("Hostlist items per thread is more than 7900. Setting to 7900.")
       howmany = 7900

Lua C functions are limited to a maximum stack size of 8000 (I
believe) in Lua 5.1. In Lua 5.2 this limit is increased to 1e6.
