Well, mechanisms already exist. We're just trying to create a cleaner
one that works with the browser's DOM so it looks native in the
browser, has the chunk support, etc.

FTP servers can be "easy" to setup but mapping who uploaded what and
keeping that secure is a pain. Do you use one generic account, or one
random account per user? If one generic account, how do you keep
others from downloading someone else's content? etc? Lots of questions
come to mind. But lunch is more important... :)

Must not deal with that many corporate firewalls :)
