Ok, I've committed a few modifications to the test suite that show
a few problems with our fh() implementation. This is the reason I've
been reluctant to downplay bucket brigades, since they are a better 
solution than filehandles are (file buckets don't buffer file IO, and 
they always perform a seek before every file-read operation).  Unless 
APR::PerlIO could be made to behave similarly, IMO maybe we're better off 
implementing fh() in straight perl, by just opening $upload->tempname()
(Randy, does Win32 even let you do that)?
