Consider adding -maxoutconnections to command-line and config file (like BU has)
Open, NormalPublic

Description

I'm a little annoyed that the outbound connections are the Core way, static limit.

How do you guys feel about adding a command-line parameter as BU has, -maxoutconnections to set the outbound connections, and also adding it to the config file.

I think this will help with connectivity (for users that want to have power nodes that go out to the whole network).

Thoughts?

I would be willing to implement it 100%.

This was brought to my attention today while looking at incoming connections. I think it's a good idea, despite core shooting it down long ago: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/6014/files

This should be an easy fix. Let me know if you have the time, otherwise I'll take it over.
