Kenny Paterson and I prepared a document providing an overview of how 
much data ChaCha20+Poly1305 and AES-GCM can process with a single key. 
Besides summarizing the results, the document also gives an explanation 
of why the limits are there. The document confirms the analysis done by 
Watson and others in the thread on "Data Volume Limits", but goes into 
more detail.

The document can be found on Kenny's website:
