I think PHP keeps the uploaded file(s) in memory until they have completely 
finished uploading and are ready to be written to disk. Thus if you're trying 
to upload a 10MB file you would probably have to increase the memory_limit to 
18MB to be on the safe side.

Remember HTTP uploads doesn't allow you to resume transfer. Thus if a file was 
99% uploaded and an error occurs you have a very unhappy user ;-)
