Andre,

Thanks for the tip (and the link), although I'm not planing
to use a browser for the POST, but a Rev standalone in the
following configuration :
standalone -> Rev-cgi -> DB -> Rev-cgi  -> standalone

But after all, it's still HTTP, and I might consider slicing
data in small parts if the total amout becomes really huge...
BTW at which size do data become "huge" ?

Thanks,
JB
