there is definitely i limit in [print];
there might be a limit in the symbol-length but i never found one (the longest
symbol i ever made was some 20.000 chars long)

i'm not really sure whether there is a limit in the message-box, but i guess as
long as you don't need to save the content of the message-box (by saving the
patch) you should be fine.
