Making large coda volumes

- The mysterious recipe encoded in the vice-setup script doesn't hack
  setting up a large coda volume. Suppose I wish to make a 140Gb
  coda volume. With the 4% rule, that means a 5.6 Gb metadata partition.
  Well, the script will not allow me to enter either 140Gb or 5.6Gb --
  if I do so, if announces that it will refuse to carry out some other part
  of the config and on my own head be it.

  So, how would I set up a coda volume of this size?

- Also, when you enter a number of megabytes into the script, are the units
  binary 2^20 megabytes (aka "mib"), or decimal 10^6 megabytes (aka "mb")?
  I have this fear of something horrible happening to my hard drive because
  there was a misunderstanding on this issue.
