If by "scalable" you mean "replicated", then that's available now, by
configuration along the lines I hinted at in my previous message. Adding
clustering into the mix can help increase capacity, on top of that (at a
certain cost in configuration complexity).

If instead you mean "exceeding RAM+swap size", we're hoping to have that
for the 1.7 release -- which ought to be out within a month or so.
