Just a quick shot: Maybe Chunksize can be made a parameter? I guess 
that this could replace the buffered stream IO and make it even faster, 
provided Chunksize was large enough. Knowing the Chunksize would
IMO also ease and speed up progress calculations in a callback 
routine, ProgressBar isn't aware of int64.
