SimonM may want to comment, but at the moment I think GHC is limited to
4G, but only due to lack of 64bit machines/demand on the developers.

If you look in ghc/rts/MBlock.h you'll see some references to this.

I *think* it would be easy to overcome this limit.

(this should really be on glasgow-haskell-users)
