Check out http://stackoverflow.com/q/784173/27310 to get an idea of how big SQLite databases can get in theory without performance problems. However, I'd suggest that you use a good database abstraction layer so you don't have to worry about the underlying database at all. That way, once you hit SQLite's working limits, you can switch over to a non-embedded RDBMS without much work.
