Sure, with 32-bit integers that is a possibility. Add 100 records
every second and you run out of integers in just over a year. Though
with such a datavolume, you should consider 64-bit integers. I expect
it to be possible to run out of them too, but my guess is that it
takes a few more years until we start hearing about people with that
extreme requirements.
