Yeah, this will oveflow all the normal x86/amd64 caches, they are
presently at about 12Mb IIRC.
Anyway, as I was using linux, and it's C runtime is able to treat
anything as text, the zip file I used served enough, and it can be
grabbed for the internet if anyone wants it. And it is big enough it
allowed me to do some statistics ( like 87140352 bytes / 334802 lines
= 260.27 which diverges, but not too much, from the 256 I was
expecting, I was trying to stimate sync overhead, ).
