Swazoo 2.x has streaming upload and download capability and can easily
handle such big files. I tested with few GB by myself. On both Squeak
Maybe it is a time to add that streaming to your Swazoo adaptor too? See
http://www.swazoo.org/streaming.html for more. See also HTTPRequestTest
with examples, how to use it (testing-posts).

Philippe, first sorry for late answer. Time pressures ...
I looked at your code, where you make a subclass of Site where is a test
form with file input field , then post via streaming to output file.
Problem is that you named file input field as "upload" while in my
example it is expected to be "file". So, just adjust those two names and
your example should work.
