500K is a bit larger for users to sanely review, but we certainly don't
want to fall apart. Fortunately, this problem has been solved in the latest
1.6.x and 1.7.x releases. We handle much larger diffs now, and also support
disabling uploading of very large diffs (configurable on the server).

There's no support for this. It comes up on occasion, and it's on our
radar, but I have no ETA. The problem is, everyone has a different
requirement for how it'd work, so it's not something we can easily bake
into the product. We'd likely have an extension down the road that's more
specialized for such things.

You can write code yourself. Maintaining your own fork will make it harder
to upgrade in the future, though.
The 1.7 releases are introducing an experimental extension framework, which
allows for custom features, but there's still a number of hooks needed to
be able to do things like this. We'd take patches to introduce hooks (talk
to us about the design first), and that should give you a foundation for
building in custom logic.
