In that case, if you had a server that you wanted to allow up to 32mb
uploads managed via PHP scripts, how would you do so in a secure fashion
(considering DOS)?

Would you do a check for a certain request type (such as POST) as well
as the requested URL?
Or would it not be worthwhile to be that exact?
