Should I Use Subversion?

I use Subversion, linked into JIRA & FishEye, and everything is good. I have received a request not linked to SCM to store large binary/mixed files (think Visual Studio). To maintain performance I do not want to use this installation of Subversion, but was thinking is another instance of Subversion appropriate. So I guess my questions are: -

1. What is the performance profile for Subversion when versioning large binary/mixed files?

2. What is the largest file a repository can hold?

3. Am I correct in thinking that if someone SVN:Externals between the two instances the only loading will be on the client?

4. Would it be better to just put them on a network share?

Particularly interested to hear about similar experiences.
