I believe so. So did everyone when the thread came up on Python-Dev a
couple of weeks ago -- I haven't followed up with the checkin for so

Just like you would in the old days: subclass SimpleHTTPServer, and
substitute the copyfile method with a call to shutil.copyfile with a
non-default size. (IOW, it's easier then what it was before).
