Subversion doesn't do any such silly things, so it theory, it should
be as scalable as you desire. However, at the moment, we openly admit
that the current code is still a bit wasteful of memory. We've not
yet made passes over our code to optimize memory usage; it's a matter
of tweaking here and there.

If you point out specific scenarios where you ran out of memory, we
might be able to say more, or fix the problem.
