Mike, it is going to be an uploader. It will split files to chunks on
client-side, upload them one by one and stick together on server-side.
Server-side really should just check if user is authorized to upload
files, and tell whether operation went ok. Depending on comparative
of the file and chunk, their number can be quite big. Obviously, the
faster this process goes, the better. It's 3-5 times faster on clean
install with free resources. I think on busy servers difference will
rise dramatically. So I guess - yes - performance matters.

There was some important motivation behind load-scripts.php thing...
it's not exactly that clean in my case, but I still feel like it's
