IIRC chunked uploads is in core but disabled, or was in core at some point but
was taken out.

It had a security issue, which nobody dealt with for like a year even though it
was fairly easy to fix AFAICT (security checks run on individual chunks but not
on the reassembled file).

Another thing I'd like to note is that some browsers support the blob API (part
of the HTML5 file API) nowadays, which means chunked upload can be implemented
in JavaScript instead of having to rely on a browser plugin like Firefogg :)
