Is there anyway to create a sparse file win32 platform using python?

And out of interested what is the practical limit for pickling an
object? I used pickle.dump() on a 89MB object (a binary read from a
disk file) and although it worked, my PC was pretty unusable for the 8
minutes it took to pickle.

Thanks, Graeme.
