Thanks, Eduardo. Not sure what I mean by "manage" myself, but I had a  
client ask this exact question today. Theoretically, I know the limit  
is the datatype, and I can't see any reason why WP couldn't manage  
10,000+ users, but has anyone actually worked with WP when it has  
10,000+ users? Is there any appreciable difference?

Thanks again,
