At this time, we have 64GB and 3.3M Inodes used on our ext3
filesystem.  We are hosting websites: mostly PHP scripts, images, few
videos.  I think the biggests files are around 100MB.

We don't need concurrent updates nor really big files.  What would be
the biggest partition I could share with Coda with this usage pattern?
