Uhm, not really. That is, the only problem might be how to set partitions up,
as we dont yet write RDB from (official) NetBSD sources.
NetBSD itself (any 4.4BSD derived OS!) supports (with 8k/1k bsd ffs or lfs)
2 Terabytes of partition size; scales with the "fragment size", if I recall
right. (thats 2^31 * 1 kByte).
