If I were to upload, say, a 250MB image using attachment_fu without
any resizing or image manipulation would I need 250MB of spare RAM to
handle the upload?

I ask because I'm not sure whether attachment_fu streams the data to
its storage location as it arrives over HTTP or whether it builds the
entire blob up in memory before writing it all in one go to the
storage location.

Thanks and regards,
Andy Stewart
