Is there a maximum data size for groups?

I got it working without eating all my RAM. This is for a faerie tale
editing program. Each story is contained in a group, and each page is a
subgroup of the main group.

To save a story, I have it copy each page/subgroup to the saving stack, but
then delete that page from the editing application right after it does that.
This way, it does not have to hold two copies of all 400 MB worth of data.

I also had to make sure it turns images that are not currently being viewed
invisible. That keeps the RAM usage down by a good bit.

It prolly woulda been simpler to just buy more RAM.
