So is parse() still the recommended way of checking for upload errors? I've 
tried body_status(), however that only returns 70008 (APR_TIMEUP? huh?) for 
me while doing small valid uploads.

Ok, I think I got the wrong impression that it's required because small 
parameters after file uploads that are bigger than POST_MAX are cut off, 
leading to confusing error messages in my application. Don't ask me why it 
has helped Keith...

On Win32 however, posting a big upload > POST_MAX and then calling parse() 
to get the status will crash Apache. I can reproduce that by using a 4MB 
file in upload.t, setting POST_MAX=1MB and calling parse() in

Sorry, no test patch since my modifications to upload.t are too ugly (a copy 
of the second foreach loop with a hardcoded filename basically). That 
"getfiles-binary" stuff in there is so obscure that I can't figure out how 
to properly add another bigger file to @names.
