It's a limit of FileStorage. > Is there any > other possible failure related to this that can be foreseen?

Does this include object revisions? That's interesting.

No. Unfortunately, most of the "scripts" in ZODB aren't tested or documented well and tend to bitrot. > Also, is there any documentation about the basic structures of the > database available?

No. Comprehensive ZODB documentation is needed. This is an upcoming project for me.
