Postgres splits data files well below this size, I think will start using
a new file at 1GB.  As I understand it, this limit is only on 32-bit
architectures -- going to an Alpha would make it go away (though I haven't
tested it).

It's certainly not Postgres.  I have one table with 815,465 records in it
(and 3 indicies).  That database is only around 160MB though...
