The screen radically changing when the use clicks upload is confusing. 
Many times a user may upload an attachment half way through typing a
story (for example to upload an inline image) and adding the preview to
the top of the screen would only confuse what they are doing.
This patch adds a new op called nodeapi which validates the node and
then re-displays the form sans preview.  This allows those modules who
wish to add new methods not be forced to preview.  Once the preview is
displayed it will stay on the screen.
