| Am I likely to hit any hard VCL implementation limits (in
| depth-of-conditional-nesting, overall size, VCL compilation overhead,
| etc.) if my VCL is ~100-200MB in size?

It will probably take a while to compile.  Somebody at VUG3 mentioned a
50MB VCL for similar reasons and it took a little bit to compile and he
wanted some evil hacks to be able to distribute the compiled VCL due to
that, but apart from that, I believe it worked well enough.
