do not expect large file support in Coda in the near future.
First of all, you probably do not want one :)
Coda caches whole files. It takes at least ~4 minutes to open() a 2G file
for the first time, given a fast client, a fast server and full badwidth
of a 100Mb LAN.

Cannot tell you anything, have not tried. Probably at beta.
