The support works out of the box for me as long as I use the correct
enctype on the form. I just use request.args to get the data, it's the
filename that I have a problem with.

    <form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="./" method="POST">
    <input name="myFile" type="file" />
    <input type="submit" value="Upload file" />

When I get the POST I just use:

outputStream = open(filename, 'wb')

I find filename by doing the stuff outlined in the beginning of this thread.
