Opening very big files checks the size of the file in bytes.  There is
a similar option in dired-x `dired-omit-size-limit' which checks the dired
buffer in bytes before erasing file lines in the dired buffer.  But it
seems that a new user option for opening very big directories should check
the directory size for the number of files.  What would be a good default
limit?  Perhaps, 4000 files and more?
