It might need something more sophisticated than this. LANL have some file
upload forms that accept up to 1Mb of data from clients over the damp piece
of string that passes for a network in many parts of the world.

The timeout should at least be on blocks of data read and not on the
complete time for the request, unless that can be added as well which would
be nice.

it's a good idea, though not as straightforward as you might have been
