Maximum file sizes on differrent file systems

I was looking up the maximum file size on a file system for a friend, and I realised I didn't even know this stuff. Here is a couple:
FAT32: 4 GiB
NTFS: 16 EiB
ext2 and ext3: 16 GiB to 2 TiB (see this note about max range)
ext4: 1 EiB
ReiserFS: 8 TiB
HFS plus (used by Apple's Mac OS X): 8 EiB
