[python-win32] Sparse files and Pickle

Could anyone tell me if it is possible to create a  sparse file on
win32 platform using python, and if so how?

And just out of interest, what is the practical limit for pickling an object?
I pickled a 89MB binary read from a disk file, and although it worked,
hogged my PC for about 8minutes making it unusable.

Many thanks, Graeme
