Coda groups scalability

Can somebody tell about his/her own experience or make a suggestion based
on the code knowledge -

how well do Coda groups (and e.g. the pdbtool utility) scale?

Is it ok to have thousands of users?
[assume yes except that the "list" command becomes impractical]

Is it ok to create a group with several thousand users?
[assume yes, with the same limitation]

Will checking against an acl containing the group take a lot of time?
[assume no]

Best regards!
