PUT already can accept byte ranges more or less - the client just has
to tell the script (PHP for example) something like
put.php?offset=123456 - and then in php you fseek($fp, $offset) and
resume filling in the content from there.

It takes a smart client to know where it left off though. That's one
thing I don't know exactly how it works.

Here's an example product:

bit about upload resuming
http://www.radinks.com/upload/examples/resume.php.txt - the PHP script
they provide as an example
