Are you getting "out of memory" errors? At a guess, plack will be 
building up a copy of the whole PUT request before passing it to dancer. 
That might end up using multiples of the original file size.

Hmm - if it is a memory problem, you're not alone in struggling with it. 
Here's a chap who tries various Ruby+Rails based solutions before ending 
up with an apace java servlet.


It's possible one of the plack handlers will help with this, but a 
little bit of googling didn't show me anything obvious.
