Display active HTTP upload operations on the status page

Description (last modified by daira)

When a tahoe client uploads a file to a tahoe gateway via the WAPI, the status page on the gateway doesn't show it as an active operation until the file was entirely received.

It would be useful to see which active uploads are taking place and the amount of data that was already received by the gateway.

#950 (upload doesn't appear in the Recent Uploads Downloads page) was a less well-explained duplicate of this. This is closely related to #320 (add streaming (on-line) upload to HTTP interface). I suspect that we won't be able to implement this ticket very well without solving the issue that #320 is blocked on of getting access to the partially-uploaded data in twisted.web. See also #951 (uploads aren't cancelled by closing the web page) and #952 (multiple simultaneous uploads of the same file).

I disagree that we should consider this to be blocked on #320 (or #1288 which #320 is itself blocked on). It should be possible to give some indicator of progress, even without implementing streaming upload.
