Two questions, either of which may belong more on the developers list.
But lets try here first:


1.       As we migrate services to Galaxy, a stakeholder expressed
concern at uploading large datafiles of "several gigabytes". Given that
we can require users to  upload from an ftp site or something similar,
does anyone have experience with how well this works with gigabyte-size
files? I figure I can always write a tool to upload masses of data via a
slow but robust method, but it would be good to know if this is

2.       Similarly, someone else wanted to know if Galaxy authorization
could be plugged into another system, such as  Active Directory. Any
pointers on this, or will I have to cut some code?
