it doesn't sound scary to me, though I have to admit that I never worked with a 
repository of that size. I've seen repositories that contain around 10 million

jackrabbit does not store the complete file in the database, it stores the 
contents of a file in a data store [1]. the database will only contain a 
reference into the data store.
