Eventually (around a thousand installs I think), you'll start running
into files-per-directory limits for most operating systems where the
number of files stored on disk (to handle the DB) is too many to
At that point you'd need to start splitting things out to separate databases.
There's no inherent limit coming from WordPress, it's all
