In ZWEI in System 78.58, ZMail 38.5, Local-File 32.15, Experimental DAEDALUS 29.9, microcode 843, on Lisp Machine Two:

A suggestion.  When a file is being read into a new buffer, as with C-X C-F,
when a screenful of text has been read in perhaps it can be displayed while
the rest is being read.  ZMail does a similar sort of thing for Mail and Rmail
files.  This can be useful in many situations, e.g., text files you want to
read from the top, or when the text at the top of the file reveals that that
wasn't the file you had in mind.  The processing can be done while waiting 
for the host machine to respond to network requests.  Low priority.    - phiL
