Anytime the request coming in is bigger than the config variable
'large-file-threshold' (see <INSTANCE_HOME>/etc/zope.conf), the
request body is streamed to a temp file. That's because otherwise the
whole file gets loaded as a string in the memory, and can possibly
take your server down by memory exaustion. Disk exaustion is less
likely to occur given hard drives are cheaper than RAM *wink*.
