No, only compatibility or your boss can force you to do that.
You can use hooks and/or OOP inheritance or interfaces to
split circular references.

The hard limit is far beyond the bearable.
The Mac OS X platform has a 450.000loc unit, but that is auto
Practically a unit with 10MB/200.000loc feels sluggish to
work with even on a fast computer.
