Yes, could be, I didn't test it completely.

Erik wanted to transfer files that wouldn't necessarily fit in memory.
If you are working with files that do fit in memory while running the
activity, you can take out the chunk logic and just read in the whole
file and send it in one go.

Otherwise, you could experiment with larger chunks and see what works.
Try both server (gabble) and link local (salut) sharing, they should
both support message fragmentation allowing large messages but they may
have different limits at the moment.
