With UFS2 you can use file systems up to 2^73 (8 ZB). The problem is 
not UFS, but the old tools used to format the disk like fdisk and 
bsdlabel. For big file systems you must use gpart.

The problem with file system recovery times when "the worst thing 
happens"(tm) is soluted/mitigated with su+j on FreeBSD9.
