Are you talking about large index files, or indexing large files?  The 
references to "source" and "offset" make it seem like these options address the 
latter, but maybe I'm misunderstanding something.

I don't care about indexing individual files larger than a couple of megabytes, 
but I have run into a 2 GB limit on the size of the index file.  Still, I might 
be better off keeping my indexes split up into less-than-2GB parts anyway, since 
I fear that larger index files lead to larger memory use during searching.
