"Lines of code" isn't really a relevant measure here, it's about how many bytes.

I think you're limited primary by the filesystem the repository
resides on, and possibly by the amount of RAM in the server and
certain versions of APR. Regardless, your files are probably file -
I've got a lot of multi-megabyte files in my repository and haven't
had a hint of trouble.
