Here we quite often end up with whopping huge logfiles (25 - 30 gig
files have been known to appear in times of crisis). Some sort of proper
support for temporary, large attachments might very well come in handy. 

As it is we've ended up with a fun little setup where an old RAID box
has a rather elaborate directory structure made up of product, component
and bugid. 

It works reasonably well, but it is a bit ugly in what is otherwise a
quite tightly integrated bug tracking structure.

Certainly this a WIBNI request :)
