So, I'm trying to setup a smooth pathway for our users to import their
NGS data into Galaxy. I'd hoped for a solution that would require zero
interaction with an administrator, but things seem more awkward than
they should be:

1. We can automagically push produced NGS data into a user import
directory on the host server. No problem.
2. The user can upload the data into  via "Shared Data / Data Libraries
/ <name of data library> / Add datasets / Upload directory of files"
3. _But_ this data library must be created by an administrator, who must
then assign appropriate permissions (access and add) for the appropriate

Have I got this right? I suppose that the last step only needs to be
done once (create an "import library" for every users that I expect to
want to import), but it seems a little fiddlier than expected. Is there
an easier way, have I missed something?
