Hmm? You can read from a file and write to the http socket. There is no
reason or need to load the entire contents into memory.

I don't know what client you're using, but I do know the Python client is
broken in this regard. It erroneously loads the full content into memory.
But there is nothing from the Riak server that demands such an approach.
