It's pretty straightforward on the storage API end; just add an SMsendfile
routine that takes a token and a file descriptor. Overview will be
trickier and isn't as obvious of a win.
The internal implementation of SMsendfile for tradspool will need to
account for non-wireformat articles, though.
Not sure where we'd use sendfilev?
