I store 65GB of data in my coda tree.
Any one client only hoards about 40GB
of if though.

While not at the levels your speaking of,
I'm certainly higher then the 3.3GB data set.

I would be interested to hear from the devs
what they think the limitations are and
what challenges they face to increase that
