Ok, lemme rephrase my questions...

The man page lists maximums for values at 64K, and names at 255
characters.  This implies these are the only limits one need worry about
-- i.e. there is no limit on the maximum number of 255 byte names nor is
there a limit on the sum of the values of attributes.   Is it something
like 2^60 bytes? or some such limit that no one will ever hit?   Could
I store alternate soundtracks for movies in attribute fields, or
alternate scenes for movies?
