Yeah, that's horrible. Its likely bad for performance too, because
even if you have enough memory, it blows everything out of the L2/L3
caches, and if you don't have enough memory it obviously causes other
So it would probably be a great idea to make the filtering code able
to do things in smaller chunks, but I suspect that the patch to chunk
