     I still do some work with what used to be considered very large files from
     an ongoing nationwide household survey, but these days the data files might
     be thought of as perhaps "small" in size.  

Some time ago I did an experiment on PSPP sorting  a data file with 
~8 million records.  It took about 20mins to do, but performed without a hitch.

8 million might not be large for the US --- but it's probably about the same
number of households in Australia.
