We have some Javascript widgetry under development which would allow us to do
multiple simultaneous file uploads. This should work with many older browsers

Flash still has a few advantages -- for instance, showing progress, and it's
able to do secure crossdomain uploading when you want to upload to a different
wiki than the one you're currently taking to. (For instance, uploading to
Commons when on en.wikipedia.)

The way the widget is being designed, we could swap in a Flash transport system
for older browsers. I agree that this would be an acceptable use of Flash.
There is a teeny tiny invisible Yahoo UI Flash component that helps their YUI
Upload javascript class; we could even just repurpose that since the license is
probably compatible.

In the meantime though, Flash isn't a front-burner issue since it's mostly been
obviated by progress in the browser space.
