I personally disagree, it's quite normal (if not expected!) for software to
stop working upon disk fill-up, and trying to recover smartly from this (and
then maybe a few million other issues) would make it more complex, less
mantainable and slower.

+1 for returning a 500 instead, and logging the error as critical if it
doesn't already.
