Well, the question was actually "What is the maximum size of this

largest index key for the ZODB index I believe, and that is some
ludicrously high number that no one has ever reached.
If you're using FileStorage, a technical detail in the implementation
of the FileStorage index limits the maximum file offset that can be
used to 2**48-1, or about 281 terabytes. Object IDs are effectively
64-bit integers (masquerading as 8-byte strings).
If that's not falling in the "ludicrous" category, I don't know what
is ;) I suppose we'll all be safe for a while.
