My largest file is 32k lines. It's a novel translation (so essentially
two very long novels in one file), and there's no perceptible lag in
navigation/folding. BUT! It's almost all plain text, very little
fontification besides the headlines, and I understand that fontification
is one of the major causes of lag. So, dunno if that's helpful, but it's
another data point.


(Using the Ubuntu version of Emacs, 23.3 I believe, and yesterday's org-mode)
