I have the strange suspicion that if anyone else had suggested this, you'd

Actually, I was thinking more about a *server* limit rather than mailbox
format imposed limits; and that this limit would be for administrative
reasons rather than technical reasons.
IMAP already has a built in limit of 2^32 - 1. On many systems, a file
can't be larger than 2^31 - 1. Cyrus imposes a limit of around 100MB, and
I'm thinking about a similar limit in UW imapd.
