Uploading a file is simply performing a PUT on an object URI:
http://code.google.com/apis/storage/docs/reference-methods.html#putobject

Content goes in the HTTP request body.

When someone tries to bash a cleanly designed RESTful interface as being "too complicated", you know it's a sad state of affairs. If this can lead to even one person reading chapter 5 of Fielding's dissertation, maybe some good can come of it after all...

If you feel like making an exploit public, go right ahead. Just make sure you send your patch along with it. What? No patch? It's a java servlet app, not an ELF binary.
