FWIW, GNOME migrated to GitLab, so their projects can be used for
testing at least the scalability to some extend.

Yesterday, after writing the above, I've checked out the gtk project and
enabled Magit/Forge on it.  The initial fetch of the topics (~1900
issues and ~800 merge requests) took about two hours, but contrary to
what has been reported in another message in this thread, it did not
crash and indicated its progess in the mode-line (something like pulling
1211/1871 Issues).

The UI also doesn't feel sluggish with that number of issues/merge
requests.  And AFAIK, Forge puts all issues and merge requests in a
SQLite database so you have them all locally and efficient querying
