Reimplement upload (POST) handling to match apache/zeus/thttpd/boa functionality
Uploads (POST/PUT data) should be handled without the server performing any buffering, so that cgi/fastcgi/scgi applications can determine their own buffering method. This will also improve lighttpd's CGI compatibility with every widely used http server implementation.

to buffer or not to buffer, this is a problem. what if u have 5 fastcgi worker at most but having 5 user uploading at the same time slowly? all other fastcgi request is blocked. (with php, u have static number of workers)
anyways, it's in jan's TODO to support both mode, tune by conf.
