Please. Could you put up a (g)zipped version somewhere I could fetch it?
You could mail it to me, but if it's insanely large I prefer to get it with
HTTP/FTP. We shouldn't have any arbitrary limits on line-lengths, but one
of our underlying libraries may have. I'll need to do some debugging on
sample data to find out so that sample file would be really helpfull.
