Not yet.  I agree that storing to disk is harmful, so I included
the functionality to delete the File handle I have been passed
from the Request object when I am done with it.  That makes it
ephemeral storage--however the best approach would be to keep it
in memory.

The issue is when you have several clients accessing the server
and uploading 512k files at the same time, you can bring the
server to its knees by keeping everything in memory.  Just something
to think about.  Although if you have unlimitted hardware budgets,
then memmory is definitely the way to go.
