Ok. Well, I discussed this a bit more on IRC with both markphip,
sussman, maxb and dlr. They all think there are limits too and that
we're stretching our end of the deal by taking the file size into
account too (on trunk, ofcourse).

So, that would mean the issue should probably be closed as MOSTLY
FIXED :-) with a target milestone of 1.5.

Alright?

Erik.
