A while ago, I encountered a problem uploading images >1MB to a Nodejitsu instance. I assume that cloud hosting providers like Nodejitsu do not always support a large filesystem for node.js instances. Since I needed to upload the file to the server before pushing it to an image hosting service, I modified node-formidable to support uploading files to Buffers instead of to the filesystem.

Hi @Elzair - thanks for this contribution. I have to admit that I'm a little hesitant when it comes to merging this, as the desired functionality can be provided in userland as well (by defining your own form.onPart = function(part) { handler).

Do you see any compelling reasons why this should be part of formidable itself?
