Currently the upload module checks two max file sizes. First it checks a
global option; if its too big it quits. Then it checks another max file
size (or even sizes) related to the roles which a user is in.

We can remove the global option since the individual roles are checked.

Oh and this includes a refactoring which changes one undocumented
function that did two things into two documented functions that do one
thing each. Forgot about that part.

Well, you're not entirely correct... upload module allows you to disable
a limit by setting it to 0. Thus, you could either want per-role
settings, or global settings. Or use the global setting for everyone,
except have one role have a stricter limit.

So we need to decide whether these are valid use cases, or just
unnecessary complexity.

I add a +1 for anything that removes complexity from the upload module.
So I +1 this change.

Removing the global check is OK if we remove the '0 is
unlimited'-paradigm.  A paradigm which, by the way, is
developer-centric.  I don't mind us removing it.

This revised patch should make '0' or blank mean unlimited for the per
user quota and file size limits. I have not tested it. It is not
documented in the form items. Now might be a good time to look at the
defualts for those. I still very short on time and probably won't be
able to properly revisit this for a week or so. Got to get on a plane
