Please have a look at the "Hookable PUT" proposal (which has already
been implemented for 2.3):
This project adds an API to the handler for HTTP/FTP PUT requests to
non-existent objects (so that you can specify/tweak the object which
Handling PUT in the object directly (for WebDAV/FTP/HTTP "uploads")
would be the job of your File-like object. The PTK's content objects
do this now, for limited types of content (structured text with
RFC822-style headers for the metadata); we plan to add other filters
there, as well.
We'd be glad of your help definining the API. Could you take the
text of your message and create a "fishbowl" proposal with it on
the dev.zope.org site?
