Disable spooling of uploads by perlbal?

Hi all,

We've just started using Perlbal as the load-balancer for our staging
environments, and I'm a little confused by the documentation. We are
load-balancing a number of Mongrel (http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/)
servers. As I understand it, Perlbal buffers the whole POST to disk (or
memory) first, then sends it back to the backend once the POST is
complete. Mongrel has a built-in "spooling of large uploads to disk"
feature, and we'd like to have Perlbal just pass all the bytes straight
back to the Mongrels.

Is this possible to do without custom hacking? Am I just totally confused?
