For example, I have some files of around 15000 lines that cannot have their scan reports output on a 32 bit machine due to running out of address space, which seems a little ridiculous.

Yes, I agree with you that that is ridiculous :)

Yep, outputting just the function being reported about is highly desired.  I don't know of anyone working on this though.
