(subject adjusted to match the thread referenced below)

Please see http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.devel/108604/focus=108836
and vlf.el on the EmacsWiki.

I'd like to implement this for large (over int size) files and with
editing, but it's low on my TODO list.  If someone else is feeling
frisky...
