I was asked by a client if it was possible to implement something similar to
the asynchronous file upload used on gmail using only standard web
technologies.

Looking at the gmail source code I can see that they use some flash magic.
And by reading the HTML5 spec I could not find a way to implement this
feature.

Wouldn't it be great if this was possible?
