It was also my impression that breaking files into already interleaved 
chunks was not the preferred choice. I think the idea of defining an 
"append already interleaved chunk" API was a temporary measure to get a 
demo working sooner so that we can tests switching heuristics and the like.

I agree.  This seems the most flexible, and least cumbersome. Long term 
I think we should aim for this.
