Hi Alex,

The initial idea for the APPEND method was to perform a basic append.

Could you be more specific on what kind of a behaviour you are expecting
when you say pause/resume like in ftp? Do you expect the server to return
the size of the data appended so far when paused? And how do you pause it
(when the connection was lost??) Maybe I am missing something here.
