The Berkeley DB supports extremely large database files:


especially when largefile support is available. Most repositories should never
get to that size. FWIW, a mirror of the entire Perl repository of changes since
5.004 comes to about 614MB, with the strings file alone being 514MB. Anyone who
needs to have a database file greater than 2GB can use a largefile supported BDB
for the maximum size.
