Sorry, I missed the bit where you said no highlighting is bad. But in 
that case, auto-disable works fine. In any case, there is no xxx Gb 
maximum, I just meant that we shouldn't have a document menu option that 
is only for disabling reparsing when it can be done automatically.

Also I'm not sure whether Scintilla handles very big files well. I don't 
think we need to be concerned about that.
