Yes. The upload consists of multiple files in a multi-part POST. Getting some 
of the files is better than getting none of the files.

The problem there is that I'm dealing with a custom client (I'm not actually 
serving a website, the client end is a automated program not a browser), and 
if we ship a new client, it takes about a year for 100% of the machines to be 
updated. So if the timeout is client related (which is probable), and 
fixable, it's still going to be a year before we've solved the problem. So 
partial solutions for the interim are desireable.
