[modified slightly from a similar proposal to zope3-dev to match Zope
2's publisher]

I'm writing up a proposal for the ZODB to make even more efficient Blob
handling possible.

This includes not copying the data from an uploaded file, but using a
`link` operation when possible. 

However, the HTTPRequest class currently uses the default implementation
of the cgi module's FieldStorage.

I propose to create a small subclass to override the `make_file` method
to use `NamedTemporaryFile` instead of `TemporaryFile` to allow the file
being accessible from a filename so I can apply a `link` operation.

Notice: The FieldStorage explicitly provides the `make_file` method to
allow overriding in this sense.

Does anybody feel like this would be a bad idea?
