We haven't had any [already requested by Andre Klapper] input on chunked
uploads yet. Until we put heavy artillery like client-side Java on the
battlefield, let's wait for folks from Hong Kong to check out chunked method

To users facing the issue and willing to test the feature: go to your settings
on Commons, pick the Upload Wizard tub, and enable "Chunked uploads for files
over 1MB in Upload Wizard". Then try to upload a large file and tell us how did
it go.
