You might be better off using multipart/form-data instead of
application/x-www-form-urlencoded, whether or not the data was
uploaded through 'file upload'.

My list of server implementations of multipart/form-data 
    ftp://ftp.parc.xerox.com/pub/masinter/file-upload-impl.txt

is pretty old; if you have any updates or newer info, let me know.
