 If no one else is currently doing so, I'll make a patch that integrates
 SWFUpload .  I've been using the latest beta of SWFUpload for another
 project, so I have a good idea about what needs to be changed.  The first
 things that come to mind:
  * You can't attach an event to html buttons to trigger the event that
 opens the file browsing window, for security purposes in Flash 10.
  * The graceful degradation plugin has been replaced with another.

 Based on Otto42's suggestion, how about having SWFUpload degrade to Gears,
 if available, or to regular upload if not.
