 What I suggested will give you the control that you need, and its a
 change entirely implementable in iFolder that would not require any
 changes to Mono.   Your implementation also can completely circumvent
 the limitations we have (the 32 bit int, which will limit the upload
 file to 2 gigs).

+I also think that posting such large files through the web interface
+is not practical. You would have to tweak the request timeout limit to
+a value high enough that would make a DoS attack really easy. Not to
+mention that the browser would be stuck, the network congested on the
+user side (assuming the server has more bw) and that all the data
+would be lost in case of a connection failure.
