You can avoid the creation of a big WAResponse by subclassing (or by
creating your own response-class) and defining a method #contents that
does something smarter, like returning a file-stream instead of a

However, I would suggest to avoid letting Smalltalk handle such huge
responses. It doesn't scale well for that matter. Since your data is
not coming from your image it is much more efficient if you use Apache
and Rewrite rules for that.
