A good question; using mapped file seemed like a good idea (much easier to
deal with than reading chunks explicitly) and, frankly speaking, I didn't
thought about possible virtual address space shortage as a side-effect.
Anyway, I tried ImageGetDigestStream with a big file on Vista and apparently
it uses whole file map as well - no problem here.
