It seems the choice of whether to make_file or StringIO is based on the existence of self.length... per my previous comment, content-length doesn't seem to appear in any of the multipart/ item headers, so it is unlikely that real files will be created by this code.

Sadly that seems to be the case for 2.x also, so I wonder now if CGI has ever properly saved files, instead of buffering in memory...

I'm basing this off the use of Firefox Live HTTP headers tool.
