Yeah I wasn't sure if we wanted something like that here: the new file 
entry shows up where the file form and progressbar was. The visual link 
is quite clear. Implementing a generic Yellow-Fade-Technique in Drupal 
is also tricky because you need to deal with the page cache.

The percentage should be above the bar, not in it... you're probably 
seeing some clearing issue with my theme. Because it will be monitoring 
the progress through Ajax, it will not update very smoothly, so a 
constant animation is not a bad idea.

Thanks for the review,
