I too have this problem as of late. For some people I had ongoing
conversations with, generating grants over and over has been annoying.

My idea was to make grants work more in the same spirit as tickets: have
an usage count / time to last usage / total time limit, as for tickets.

If you wanted to give someone a permanent way to exchange files with

Otherwise, the grant would default to "unlimited files" (just use the
grant again), with automatic expiry as soon as it's no longer used for a

For existing setups that like the old behavior, you could just set a "1
upload" limit default.
