Issue #10 wontfix

S3Storage._save loads entire file into memory, breaking on large files

Anonymous created an issue

The ._save method builds a //content_str// to pass to _put_file

This limits the file-sizes handleable by S3Storage to available machine memory.

    Why not switch to S3BotoStorage, which doesn't suffer from this issue (IIRC)? Why are there even two S3 storage systems? Wouldn't it be smarter to focus our efforts on one?
