I use it for opening Huge gziped mailboxes and the only drawback I had
is that it wants to unpack the file in $TMPDIR, which is a 128Mb tmpfs
on my computer. That's all, otherwise, it is the best
speed/quality/stability/conviviality/useability tools I found. I use
it with vim, gpg, aspell, procmail, fetchmail, and bogofilter.
