I have a cgi python script that does upload. It should be easy to convert.

import cgi
form = cgi.FieldStorage()
print 'Content-type: text/html'

if not form:
        print """
        <html><head><title>File Upload</title></head><body>
        <form action"/cgi-bin/file.py" method="POST"
        <input type="file" name="filename">
        <input type="submit" name="Send_File" value="Send_File">
        <p>Please compress the file(s) with Winzip or some other compression

tool before sending the file.
elif form.has_key("filename"):
        item = form["filename"]
        if item.file:
                data = item.file.read()
                filen = item.filename
                filen1 = filen.split('\\')
                filen2 = filen1[len(filen1)-1]
                #filen2 = 'd.txt'
                open('/www/download/' + filen2 + '.tmp','wb').write(data)
                print """
                <html><head><title>File Upload</title></head><body>
                Thank you for the file
                print cgi.escape(filen2)
                print '</body></html>'

I'm developing an application using mod_python and I'd like to include 
file upload progress indication.. However, I don't see any obvious way 
on how do to such a thing.
