	I generally keep partitions under 4MB, to make sure I can easily cram a
couple of them onto a backup tape.  Actually, most DDS/DAT drives these days
handle 8-12MB easy, so that's probably a paranoid figure.  Other than that,
so far as I know, ext2 is pretty efficient for any size you're likely to
want to make it.
