I attempted something similar with a digest of a PeerGuardian database
reworked with tableutil-0.6. The resultant file had 157,546 subnet
declarations in it.

When I attempted to populate a pf table with the file on 6.2-RELEASE, it
thought about it for a few seconds, then happily reported:

pfctl: Cannot allocate memory.

I never pared it down to see where the actual limit was for my hardware,
though, as a partial PeerGuardian list is pretty much useless.
