I was answering about *our* Galaxy, where only a few of
the users have a Linux account. In most cases their home
directory is on Windows... and not easily accessed from
our Linux cluster if at all.

This is available to a Galaxy administrator for shared libraries
of files made available within Galaxy, see:

Perhaps something like Alban Lermine's upload_local_file
or Edward Kirton's data_nfs tool on the ToolShed would
work for you?
