Sorry, but when you access the sample page and you find instructions on 
it, you start to think that it's all that's needed and you don't go 
around looking for README.txt files ;-).

Rather than design purism, my observations were mode driven by the 
desire of having a cleaner interface between the backend and the client, 
as this might ease interoperability with other tools. Well, you might 
say that it's just FS, what "other tools" am I talking about? Besides, 
not using multipart encoding would avoid all the problems with file 
uploading in Cocoon.

It's a strange sensation, however, hearing you preach the virtues of 
"just getting it done" without first having nailed down all the possible 
contracts before. I guess everyone of us has to have one of these 
moments, once in a while ;-).

I'll try to do my best. Unfortunately, I had some problems upgrading to 
Moz 1.4 at the office, so I had to wait until I got home and started 
wrapping my head around the code yesterday night. Looks like it's quite 
easy to follow, my compliments.

	Keep up the good work,
