BTW, every time I need to increase the default value of the variable
controlling the maximum size of file above which a confirmation is requested,
I can't remember its name.  I try finding it in the list of variables, and
picking different keywords in the Info index of the Emacs manual. Usually,
I end up grepping the Emacs source tree for the text displayed in the
warning ("File is large, really open?").

This is not user-friendly.  This warning misses a link to the user option
where the user can change its value.  Maybe, the y-or-n prompt should contain
a line pointing to this user option?
