Limit Size of Checked In Files To Synergy

We are looking for a way to limit the size of an object that someone wants to check into Synergy. For example, someone today tried to sync in a 40gb file. This isn't even remotely something that a source control system should allow into its repository. Since some customers may have a need for files this large, what I'm proposing here is to give a customer an option to limit the size of objects they want. This could either be done at the installation level and/or the database level. It seems to me the tool is already looking at the date stamps from the OS to determine changes so shouldn't be a big deal (my opinion) to also check the OS's size information.

NOTE: Synergy is no longer using the PMR system and your PMR ID is looking for a format your new support system doesn't have. The support case for this is TS001523489.
