For betteruplod my inteded solution to this is:
Not put upload or file management forms in a node/add form; this is clutter.
But to add a button to "browse away and do stuff" (like upload a new image,
select a file from a DB or search for a taxo term). That button would then
save the current form entries in the session, and refill the form once a
person gets back ot the node/add (or node/edit; off course)
We could even thing of adding a JS layer on top, afterwards, that saves stuf
to the session every x mins (for crashing or accidentaly browsing a way). But
IMO that needs to be *on top* of a perfectly worjking HTML solution, never
the other way around :)
I have a feeling that FAPI has made this easier, but havent really
investigated its technical details. Yet.
