On 32-bit platform the size of empty bytes object is 17 bytes not counting padding and GC links. Plus 4 bytes for a pointer in a list. On 64 bit platform numbers are about twice larger. Therefore add at least 20-40 bytes per line.

Is not 100 MiB too large for a list in memory? For files we could use larger limit, but the problem is that file can be io.BytesIO().
