Hello Erez,

there is a draft specification to enable just this use case, at http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/webapi/FileUpload/publish/FileUpload.html

There are lots of security implications in being able to play with people'sfiles, 
which is one of the reasons why this is going slowly, but I hope that youwill 
soon see some progress on the draft...

cheers

Chaals
