The max-buffer-size on 32bit machines was increased yesterday in Emacs-CVS
from 128M to 256M.  There might be other limitations (some of them within
Emacs) that can still prevent you from opening a 200M file, tho.
I have an additional patch that pushes the limit to 512M, but it hasn't
been accepted/installed yet.
