I cannot believe how rotten it is to upload a large file to S3 Glacier from the CLI. Wow, just, wow, what a terrible experience. They want the user to use multi-part uploads, and they want the user to chunk the file down to under 100mb per part, and then they want the user to calculate a fucking tree hash on each part which culminates in a reduced and final hash. Like what the fuck are you thinking here?

Granted, storing 12GB of important photos in the cloud for $.05 a month sounds super awesome, but not at the expense of me needing to write a god damned script to handle that process.
