Yeah, I see. So in either case the file would have to be uploaded to history so 
it would not make sense to keep uploading the same file multiple times.

Galaxy doesn't really support this mode of operation. Data upload and 
tool/workflow execution are separated so that all data used by tools is 
captured within immutable datasets to ensure reproducibility.

You could implement this, but unless you still create a dataset for the 
uploaded file, I think it would break other things (like re-running tools).
