Last year I did some experiments with large files, see
http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/bts/issue546 for details about my findings.
In short: You need python version 2.5 or later with issue 1372 fixed (
http://bugs.python.org/issue1372) to be able to handle files > 1GB.
Mercurial itself seams to have a limit of 4 GB due to the way chunk sizes
are stored in the index.
I made some experiments regarding runtime performance and memory usage at
that time, but I don't have the numbers at hand right now. At least I can
say that the performance is not too bad if you have enough main memory in
your system (I did my experiments on servers with 64GB memory).
