That's a bit too simple. Yes, APR 0.9.x does have issues with largefile
support, and whether or not those issues apply in your case depends on
how your APR was compiled. APR-1.0 and later fixes those problems, IIRC.

Apart from that, yes, in FSFS these problems should only show up if an
indivitual revision file is larger than 2GB.
