We noticed this as well, while testing Trac.  The filehandle can't  
just be closed inside formfile since it needs to still be alive when  
the request is actually sent, and a file pointer isn't accepted as an  
arg to formfile (only filename).  Our monkeypatched version accepts  
either a filename (which is read into a StringIO) or a file pointer  
to be passed through directly (which can be later closed).
