There's nothing in trunk, no one working on it that I know of. Chunking
large files is an unfortunate default in mogtool. I tried working out
how it would be beneficial even, and it doesn't appear to help many
If it continues, it may become an awkward non-default. If there's a good
enough use case that'll make people clamor for it, it'll get more work ;)
