 The attached patch enables uploads with different MIME types or file
 extensions to be treated differently. By filtering structured form fields
 and inputs/outputs, core and plugins will provide appropriate UI for knows
 file types.

 Included as an example, images use different labels, form fields, form
 validation, help messages, error messages, and "Send to editor" options.
 All of these features can be customized for audio, video, swf, zip, etc.,
 with a few filters.

 Validation errors and help messages are displayed directly below related

 Related taxonomies are automatically added to appropriate attachments. The
 experimental "people" taxonomy for images takes advantage of a recent
 patch to keep the people listed in the same order they were entered.

 The multimedia uploader can handle any and all allowed file types. Each
 attachment's edit box is customized on the fly. Form generation and
 processing are each passed through filters.

 Much of the code in this patch will be reused in the Media Library screen.

 I think this will eliminate the need to require the user to choose an
 uploader appropriate for the file. All attachments can go through this one
