I think we all do :-)

Ummm "never say never".  Unless I misread what Jan said he did not say
that this problem cannot be addressed, simply that it will be a big
step to take in the development of Coda.  For a lot of people the
limit of 7000 files in a directory is not a big issue and hence it has
not reared it's head before.  The Coda team need to look at what can
be done to address the issue and try to address the scalability.  I
see it more as a hurdle (albeit a large one) than an insurmountable
obstacle.  Hopefully it will simply mean the next step in the
evolution of Coda!
