I don't think this is the case by default; the 2gb limit is a pre-existing
limitation in ext2, which is the default filesystem in Linux 2.4.  Not until
Linux 2.4.1 did an alternate filesystem add features to remove this barrier
(ReiserFS), and it is not the default. In addition to ReiserFS, SGI's XFS
and IBM's AFS seem to address large file support and are all avilable as
patches to the mainstream kernel.

However, doesn't Python impose some sort of limit as well?  Anyone have a
number?  Does this depend on the architecture of the machine (i.e. 64 vs. 32

Check out 

Also, if you run Linux kernel >= 2.4 there's no limit.
