While there is a limit on the number of images you can use in Mosflm for
indexing, this number is large enough (it's 10) to provide a sufficient
sampling of reciprocal space to successfully index most datasets. The
images don't have to be adjacent to each other. 

I don't know how many images XDS can use to index; my recollection is that
standalone Denzo uses only one but I think HKL2000 can index on multiple
images. Perhaps someone can enlighten me?
