    Ok, the choice of a maximum value of 65536 which is already is use for
    several months/years was made partly for the same concern.
    Beside, as the values are not enforced, we should be relatively safe.

    Searching the archives, I also found usage of a value "around a MB".

    Thanks for this information. I should add that I checked that no
    regression was introduced with ltp-full-20080531, but I did not look
    more closely (e.g. coverage of this part of the code).
