One last thing.

If I set the parameters
   request_body_in_file_only = 1
   request_body_in_persistent_file = 0

then the entire request body will be saved in a temporary file and this 
file will be removed when I finalize the request?

The request->request_body->temp_file->file->fd handle is opened for read 
(and will be closed at request finalization)?

Thanks   Manlio Perillo
