I guess the question would be what you intend to do with the data.
For normal bug tracking, I guess inserting, searching and state (todo)
handling would be the main tasks.  These operations would be either
O(n) or O(1), where n is the size of the file, I would imagine, so 20
MB might not be too bad?

I can't give you any specific data points that fall into that
magnitude but I can say that for files 1% that big, a slow netbook has
no problems even doing agenda views which are more expensive
operations than those mentioned above.

Actually, I'm glad you brought this up.  Since moving my org files to
be under version control (and boy does that make a difference to my
peace of mind!), I don't know how to deal with attachments.
Attachments, for me, are usually ephemeral and usually types of
documents I don't particularly like to deal with (typically MS Word or

Any suggestions?
