Um.... holy crap?
OK, here's my real answer. I think this is far too large of an answer for Stack Overflow. With the (substantial!) amount of effort you put into it, you deserve the benefit more than us. So here's what I would do:
- Post it on your blog. (If you don't have a blog, get one.)
- Provide a relevant excerpt that answers the question in non-novella form.
- Link to the rest of the entry for those that want to drill into the detail.
It's good stuff, but it's not necessarily a good fit for the SO answer model.
This could also be tied into the "warn me when I get to the 40k character limit" request"warn me when I get to the 40k character limit" request that was recently posted but I mentally lump these together into the "doctor, it hurts when I do this" file. But at least unlike Josh you have a valid real world example :)
edit: we really should be warning users when they enter a novella body text that's too long, rather than just truncating silently. I added a saner check for this through the standard question form validation.
