See, for example.

If you do an override, do forward() for cli-specific work.

But you should do as little as possible for reasons you already stated: the UI. Anything you do in forward Petr will need to implement in the UI.

Unfortunately we don't yet have a nice way to handle files. We have tickets open at and

If this file is something that would be pasted into a big text field then you can probably handle it in a similarly clumsy way that we do CSRs in the cert plugin.
