No limits other than those imposed by the OS file system (ie: Linux
is currently limited to 2GB Data.fs files).  If your large objects
are static, placing them in the ZODB is reasonable.  If they are dynamic,
then your Data.fs is going to grown *fast* (a new 15MB chuck for
every change to the object).  You might want to look at the LocalFS
product, which allows you to serve files out of the local file
system through Zope.  Depending on your specific application, that
is probably the better way to go.
