It can hold 16 billion billion pointers, with each pointer being 48
bits, thats 96 exabytes (100 million terabytes). Just for the index.
:) As an absolute minimum. Indexes normally being btrees or something
like that, you would surely need several times that in practice. :)

Sorry for any calculation errors, but I can be rather a lot off
without it making a difference, so I can't be bothered to check. ;)
