[Seaside] Uploading large files

Swazoo 2.0 beta2 web server supports now an input streaming, that is, 
streaming of http post data directly to the output stream, a file for 
instance. That is what you need for uploading large files.

More on: http://www.swazoo.org/streaming.html

So, what is still needed is that Seaside connects to that new Swazoo and 
you'll have large file uploads supported.

Best regards
