Details

Buffering to memory is easiest, but will require a config option that controls the max per-request memory used for buffering (e.g., request_buffer 8 KB would buffer up to 8K of a request body, then go forward whether or not the whole body has been received).

Buffering to disk would be more complex to implement, but would probably be more robust.
