According to the docs:
Files can be read in a little at a time, if necessary:
obj1.normal.open() obj1.normal.read(3) 'con' obj1.normal.read() 'tent' '-'.join(obj1.normal.chunks(chunk_size=2)) 'co-nt-en-t'
But this does not work for me with s3boto storage. Calling model_instance.file_field.read(3) returns the whole file. This is very problematic and causes difficulties using the django framework to transfer files between storages.
Please fix this
