Commiting Large Files.

For various reasons we're using CVSNT to maintain a repository which amongst
other goodies contains large image files of laptop's (around 650MB). 

I am aware that client.c reads the whole file (in send_modified) into
contiguous memory and so this is causing the commit to fail with out of
memory error in buffer.c.

Is there a fix or work around for this? 

The images can NOT be compressed further and spliting them would lead to
problems in reassembling them (well not so much problems as an admin
overhead we can ill afford).

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
