I looked for this in the code and couldn't find it, but I agree.  Being
able to set the table file size to something like 650Mb(the size of a
burnable CD) would be useful for disaster recovery solutions.

Subject:  [ADMIN] table file size

I recently learned that the file for a table (class) will grow to 1G and
then a new file ('tablename.1') will be created and the table will grow
that one, etc...

Is this tunable in any way?  Can we change that 1G value for growth or for
the base file?

I am able to put links in place for 'tablename.1', 'tablename.2', etc.. and
they are used without error as the table grows into them, but I would like
to not have 1G taken up by the base file before it grows and uses the links
I create.

Thanks, Charlie Crissman
