From experience it becomes too big when the underlying disk gets full. As long 
as your underlying disks can handle it, it works fine.

I use SVN for versioned incremental backups of files in the 0.5GB range. I’ve 
seen reports of others checking in multi GB files as backups with no trouble.

Best thing to do is to physically try it. Make a copy of your repo, then try 
check things into it, and see where your issues are.
