[development] How to reuse uploaded files

Unfortunately file management is one of the big weaknesses in Drupal 6, 
and I've never
found a solution that I really liked.  There are a lot of efforts toward 
improving that in D7
(the Media project, and assorted core file handling improvements) but 
for now there are
only half-measures.

John's suggestion is one of the reasonable methods, and IMCE plus 
TinyMCE is the common
way to manage embedded images.
