	Ok thanks for the info Igor. Is there anything I can do to help get  
the upload progress support in quicker? Maybe sponsor the  
development? Our customers really need a way to do upload progress  
and we use purely nginx and mongrel. I have custom mongrel extension  
that supports upload progress right in mongrel already, so is there  
no way to get an option for nginx to pass through the uploaded file?  
Or would that be too hard to add?
