We tried to upload a very large (350MB) bdist egg via distutils to our internal package server. 
And received following crash.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 1, in <module>
    import os
  File "C:\devel\cdb\10.1.tag\cdb\python\cdb\comparch\", line 120, in setup
    def setup(**kwargs):
  File "C:\devel\cdb\10.1.tag\win32\debug\img\lib\distutils\", line 60, in setup
    def setup(**attrs):
  File "C:\devel\cdb\10.1.tag\win32\debug\img\lib\distutils\", line 947, in run_commands
    def run_commands(self):
  File "C:\devel\cdb\10.1.tag\win32\debug\img\lib\distutils\", line 957, in run_command
    def run_command(self, command):
  File "C:\devel\cdb\10.1.tag\win32\debug\img\lib\distutils\command\", line 56, in run
    def run(self):
  File "C:\devel\cdb\10.1.tag\win32\debug\img\lib\distutils\command\", line 154, in upload_file
    body.write('\r\nContent-Disposition: form-data; name="%s"' % key)
MemoryError: out of memory

A patch could be very easy using tempfile.SpooledTemporaryFile()

Distutils is now deprecated (see PEP 632) and all tagged issues are being closed. From now until removal, only release blocking issues will be considered for distutils.

If this issue does not relate to distutils, please remove the component and reopen it. If you believe it still requires a fix, most likely the issue should be re-reported at
