This is good stuff (for what it is). I feel that the patch is misnamed, though. By "large files", some people mean files larger than 2 GB on 32-bit systems, which would be another feature (for wordlists). Maybe "large-passwd-files" would be it, although it's really "passwords per salt" that matter here.
