    | How about switching to Al's seqfile interface ?

    It's already using it, but it uses the simple/single version of it,
    which doesn't automagically extend the output buffer area when
    it's full, so a max size buffer has to be allocated for it
    up front.

    I'll look at changing it unless somebody beats me (to it :).
