No, at 1000+ you shouldn't have problems, almost no matter what 
database/data you're using. You may start getting slowdowns at 100,000+ 
users if you have a lot of data and probably 500,000+ if you have the 
reasonable data usually required.

Anyway, using a different database for each user would get you there 
faster - you'd not only load the database system but the filesystem as 
well with requests to multiple directories.

Just my 2c.
