Theoretically it can get to something like a halfgig. Practically...
well lets just say that I have doubts that the garbage collection regime
is really useful for large amounts of dynamic data. I think it would
need to be split up a little more to create more generations and
possibly special spaces for things like large bitmaps, rarely touched
methods etc.
