On the Flash note, I have used it to upload larger files (only on the
order of a few hundred megabytes, not into the GB)

SWFUpload works very well, and doesn't thrash about completely in
Linux -- I had problems with YUI Uploader under Linux, though.

I think the browser hard limit is ~2GB, and some (Microsoft) browsers
have content-length bugs for other large sizes.
