 Failures matter, especially in these low volume transactions (usually
 someone will attach one or two files only); not the situation in which I
 would expect batch clearing to be helpful.

 end do? I can't quite make it out from the screenshot. In the mockup it
 was meant to confirm the input to save it, or cancel to clear the changes
 to them based on the inline editing discussions on the mailing list

 Note: I think that we should discuss this on bh-dev so I will reply to the
 subsequent email that this comment creates for us to continue there.

 Actually, olemis has a point. I didn't spot that issue as I did not
 understand that jdriemann wanted the downloads to start at the earliest

 My concern here is that sometimes people are going to find that they are
 uploading files that they did not mean to. I realise that jdreimann's
 suggested drop area reduces the likelihood that a file will be dropped
 accidentally when the drag action was meant for another location, but
 mistakes will still happen just from selecting the wrong file.

 I would suggest that making sure it is possible to confirm all with a
 single button click would be enough to reduce inconvenience here - and I
 am not suggesting we should have an additional "are you sure" after that.

 Finally, even if my reasoning above is a bit too protectionist, immediate
 upload certainly seems to me to be inconsistent with the conclusions I
 believe we have come to about inline editing on the same page.
