Just a general idea that came to my mind a few days ago when i was  
working on
a custom cms solution.

File upload fields are very, very broken right now. They should be  
modified to allow

	1) Drag and Drop of files to the upload field
	2) Uploading of multiple files
	3) Setting the file type to upload
	4) Uploading/selecting of whole folders
	5) if possible, let the author read (DOM/JS) the number of files that
	were selected for uploading, their filenames/paths and their size.
