Summary: memory bloat in binary file upload (PR#381)
Details: Jitterbug-Id: 381

read_lines_to_outerboundary chews up memory.
there's a while (1) loop that does a readline(), which
is probably not good, as you could have a binary file that
doesn't have an endline til the end, and thus readline would
read the entire file into memory. i did the following:
dd'd a 100MB /dev/zero file and used zope to upload it.
it chewed up a large amount of memory.
there seems to be bug reports about text files and windows
systems (and needing to use python -u), but this problem
is unrelated. i am using a unix browser -> unix web server.
