You CANNOT use query_vars for file uploads.  As the documentation
states, you can only use query_vars to create instance variables of
type string, list or dict.

Of course, query_vars SHOULD support file types for uploads and it's
on my to-do list for a future release.  In the meantime you can mimic
it by using:

    self.UPLOAD = self.form.getfirst(UPLOAD)

where UPLOAD is the string value you gave the NAME attribute of the
INPUT tag.
