Rainbows! 0.92.0 - inching towards the pot of gold
Mostly internal cleanups and small improvements.

The only backwards incompatible change was the addition of the
"client_max_body_size" parameter to limit upload sizes to
prevent DoS.  This defaults to one megabyte (same as nginx), so
any apps relying on the limit-less behavior of previous will
have to configure this in the Unicorn/Rainbows! config file:

      Rainbows! do
	# nil for unlimited, or any number in bytes
	client_max_body_size nil

The ThreadSpawn and ThreadPool models are now optimized for serving
large static files under Ruby 1.9 using IO.copy_stream[1].

The EventMachine model has always had optimized static file
serving (using EM::Connection#stream_file_data[2]).

The EventMachine model (finally) gets conditionally deferred app
dispatch in a separate thread, as described by Ezra Zygmuntowicz
for Merb, Ebb and Thin[3].
