I finally got around to looking at this code, and it's not quite what I 
expected - it looks like it still reads the entire file into memory 
from the socket, but then immediately dumps it to disk if it's too 
large.  This is still going to be problematic if multiple people are 
uploading large files at once, isn't it?  Wouldn't it be better to 
stream directly off the socket onto disk?
