Indeed, this might be annoying.  At the same time, it is not
unreasonable to expect the user to know what size is the contents he
is willing to attach to an Org node.

(FWIW, I could not find the patch.)

I think you are on the right track when trying to enhance the 'url
package.  Maybe url-copy-file should be asynchronous and url could
provide url-copy-file-synchronously (to mimic the url-retrieve and
url-retrieve-synchronously pair)?

Until Emacs has a function to copy a URL's contents asynchronously,
I'd rather not add this functionality in Org.
