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.
