Wow! two words: perfect idea. :)

This simplifies the upload/media system, that I had in mind a huge lot.
I will rewrite my docs and code that i have till now to work this way. 

I know that this might be subotimal, performance wise, but using Jeffs
model, upload becomes nothing more then a new use of the relations

Im impressed by the simplicity and I am very glad this comes up now,
instead of after coding a huge lot of patches :)
