Allow editing large files in mcedit

I tried to edit 68MB file, but I got message "File dump.xml is too large". I found SIZE_LIMIT in edit/edit-impl.h effectively setting max. editable file size to 64MiB.

I think this limit should be removed altogether (though it may probably need a slight rewrite of buffer system in mcedit) - computers with several gigabytes of memory are common and editing text files several hundred megabytes large is often necessary, so perhaps the only limit to size of the file should be the RAM or system architecture (approx. 2 gigabytes for 32bit systems, high enough for 64bit systems).
