OK, in light of post-1.0 support of large files I'd play with /3GB and 
"large address aware" flags.

/3GB is simple; "large address aware" on Python-generated executable is 
a bit problematic for me (I'm not familiar with Python). Could you give 
me any idea how to rebuild 0.14 with this option? Or do you think PE 
header modification would be enough to allow bzr use 3GB space?


Thanks for your help,
Best regards,
