Are there any known limits to the number addresses I can create?

Certainly wouldn't need this many for personal use, but for commercial use (exchanges, escrow, etc.) one might accumulate a lot of addresses over time.

Can I create 10K or 100K or 1M addresses, or is it better to switch to a new, empty wallet after a while?

I've heard that things start to get a little slow on your average computer once you have over 10k addresses, but otherwise, there's no actual limit that I'm aware of.
