Not to nitpick, but since there's no such thing as "unlimited capacity",
let me be one level more accurate:

Internally Subversion stores file size using signed 64-bit integers, so
the theoretical limit on the size of any one file or one directory
representation is 2**63-1 bytes.

The size of a directory representation is proportional to the sum of the
lengths of filenames within it.
