Mnesia: beyond the 2GB limit on 32bits arch

Hi list,

I'd like to use Mnesia with "disc_copies" schema to store 17
millions <key,val> pairs.
Each key is uniq 160B string. The overall datasize is ~1.3TB.

How could I solve that knowing that Mnesia uses DETS behind the scene and
the latter
has a 2GB limit?

N.B: I'm aware of "tcerl", "dbd" drivers for Erlang, but I'm only looking
for pure Erlang solution.

Regards
Zabrane
