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
for:

	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.
