DATABASE AND PAGE SIZES
DB stores database file page numbers as unsigned 32-bit
numbers and database file page sizes as unsigned 16-bit
numbers. This results in a maximum database size of 2^48.
The minimum database page size is 512 bytes, resulting in
a minimum maximum database size of 2^41.
DB is potentially further limited if the host system does
not have filesystem support for files larger than 2^32,
including seeking to absolute offsets within such files.
The maximum btree depth is 255.
This means the maximum page size should be 65536.
