Of course reading entire files into memory isn't workable for a real
product, yes, well spotted! But dealing with the file text content is
ancillary to the element-tracking principles that this demo is
demonstrating. Those aspects don't depend on reading the full file
text into memory. That's just one prototyping shortcut among many.
