IMHO very good idea ^^^.  Cutting some line in the middle should not be a
problem after 4kB of characters, so why not.

I would use  something in the middle.  I really don't like code
duplication and looking at the two functions, the grep work is clearly
duplicated in [v2].  So as you proposed, use either 'dd' or 'sed'.  But
basically, I would take any of the two patches (as they work) rather than
make you to work on this too much - so I am OK if you choose what you like

Thanks for your work,
