mod_apreq will automatically spool large uploads (>256KB by default) to
disk, but if you'd rather drop their contents entirely, probably the
simplest approach would be to write a parser hook that just destroys the
upload brigade.  The code (untested- the hook API is very new) would
look something like


  ...and in your module...
      apreq_request_t *req = apreq_request(r, NULL);
      apreq_hook_t *hook = apreq_make_hook(r->pool, hfunc, NULL, NULL);

      if (req->parser)
        apreq_add_hook(req->parser, hook);
        req->parser = apreq_parser(r, hook);

You'll still have an entry for the upload in the req->body table, but the 
associated apreq_param_t 's bucket brigade (which normally holds the upload's
contents) should be empty.

Yes, unless you're doing something really funky and want to use
a "private" apreq_request_t object (not the per-request struct 
you get with a NULL argument).
