Processing such big files just to make them fit in the page IMHO does 
not make much sense and is a waste of resources.

My humble advise? Link directly to the raw page.

Alternatives are:

  1 - use a nested iframe (therefore you need to use ehtml pages)
  2 - use javascript to include the text in the page (ugh!)
  3 - insert a SSI directive to include the source on the page, letting
      Apache do the work.

In any case, if you still would like to have the "inclusion" behaviour, 
I would suggest you to make it configurable (I prefer not to generate 
pages just to decorate commandline output).
