To some extent it depends on what is in the file, as well as how big
it is.

However, to take a couple of examples that I have handy: I have opened
a 6.7Mb SVG file and a 2.9 Mb SVG file that included an 11.7Mb PNG
image (33.5 Mb when uncompressed) on ASV3, ASV6, Batik, and corel 2.1.

(For Batik I had to increase the memory allocation for Java on the
command line, otherwise it ties to cram itself into 64 Mb).

It also depends on the hardware of course: This was on a PIII 800 with
384Mb ram.
