Do we need a component at all? We have the CopySourceAction that does an 
equivalent job (if you copy an "upload:" to another source), and we 
could wrap it into a JS utility library.

Also, the Woody upload widget has currently no binding, and we could 
write one that copies the uploaded file somewhere to another source.
