For accepting multiple inputs, I'm assuming you'd differentiate your input 
files by a particular naming scheme, or location.  Using the 
example_watch_folder.py as an example, you'd need to identify and upload both 
files (the portion creating the libset variable, you'd want to create multiple 
here) and finally modify the portion where the 'ds_map' is created.  That 
dictionary is a mapping of step id's (Input Dataset steps) to the uploaded 
library id's from libset.

As far as specifying other runtime parameters, support for this is planned but 
currently it isn't possible and the workflow needs to be fully predefined 
outside of the input datasets.

Hope this helps.  Thanks for using Galaxy, apologies for the delayed response,
