I would go the other direction: compress as thoroughly as possible
and then use the `split` utility specifying whatever the upload
limit for LP is (I too have no idea what they limit attachment sizes
to). Reassembly can be done with `cat` to stuff the chunks back
together and then decompress the resulting file as usual.

This is starting to remind me of splitting uuencoded data to
overcome posting length limits on Usenet.
