=-)  Believe it or not, that actually *should* have worked.  It'd be slow
as hell with way-high CPU utilization as mod_include inspects every one of
those 100 million bytes, of course.  But assuming you don't have
accidentally have a "<!--#" in your tarball, it should have worked

I'm really curious about why it segfaulted... I don't suppose you got a
backtrace, did you?  I guess we could probably reproduce it if it's as
easy as server-parsing a really really big (possibly binary) file...
