absolutely fair enough...

ah, OK. I wasn't sure what context the Rainbows! config was evaluated in and tried

MAX_UPLOAD = 200*1024*1024
Rainbows! do
  client_max_body_size MAX_UPLOAD

and then referencing MAX_UPLOAD in my config.ru where app-wide stuff gets stuffed into Rack::Config but couldn't resolve that constant - rather than wading into looking at the scopes used for config evaluation I thought I'd just ask...

rather than using global vars I've packed some constants into a Config module in my app and it's all good.

thanks for the pointer!
