I just tweaked the wording a bit and added the missing ")"; someone
else added the item (Jim?).

This sounds completely separate. :-) You're referring to the widget,
and the item above refers to the zope.app.file.File content object.
I generally agree with you about file widgets; they're not in great
shape. Roger Ineichen did some work on this on a branch, but I've not
had time to review it. I don't recall whether he was attempting to
address all of the issues you mention.

I look forward to hearing about it, but won't be at the Plone conference myself.

Yes, the work sounds distinct from what's described in that item in
the wiki, but that's not to say Zope 3 doesn't need what you're
describing. Thanks for letting us all in on what you're up to!
