Hm, OK.  So this is sort of OT then, but wouldn't it seem like simply a 
matter of using a large-enough datatype to store the size of the file 
(specifically use an integer larger than 32 bits)?  I don't see what else a 
browser would/could really want to do with an about-to-upload file that 
would be different for a file <2GB than for one >2GB.
