Emacs22 large file y-or-n-p

Subject: Emacs22 large file y-or-n-p

User-agent: Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.0.50 (gnu/linux)

Emacs 22 has a check when visiting files for size, and a threshold
above which it queries the user whether s/he really wants to load
the file. Mostly this is a good idea, but I regularly want to load
my ~/RMAIL which gets ridiculously large.

Is there a lightweight way to avoid the check for RMAIL? I've
looked at the code (for find-file-noselect) and that permits
different size thresholds (and turning the check off altogether). 

Would defadvice around the rmail defun provide a handle? e.g.
temporarily raise the threshold variable's value to 100MB and
revert it afterwards?
