File upload methods like UploadInfo show that they need a filename as argument. Everything is fine with the sample using ->param to get this filename, but if you use ->Vars to get all arguments as a hash (ref) and then use UploadInfo on the correct hash value, it doesn't work.

Thanks for the report. The next step is for someone to provide a failing Test::More-style test case which formally illustrates the issue.

Rejecting. Documentation shows that you should use ->param method to get the filename to pass to uploadinfo. This is because internally the files are stored as Fh objects, so you need to get the correct identifier through ->param. Calling ->Vars is no good as this will return the plain key/values, i.e. the filename will be just that and not the Fh object.
