Large files on the wiki should have subsection headings of the form
==== subsection header ====
(maybe one "=" more or less on each side)
which allows to edit just that subsection.
(Fast load & save of the "edit" page, but I vaguely remember that nothing
is done for efficient storage of intermediate versions on the server.)
But I think a 10 000 line file should indeed be split in a few smaller
chunks.
Maybe one for each possible initial character / word of the number's
expression?
(i.e., ignore "Decimal expansion of", and parentheses)
