Max files in unix folder from PIL process

I ran into a similar situation with a massive directory of PIL
generated images (around 10k).  No problems on the filesystem/Python
side of things but other tools (most noteably 'ls') don't cope very
well.    As it happens my data has natural groups so I broke the big
dir into subdirs to sidestep the problem.
