One difficulty is that FileTransfer.upload and FileTransfer.download don't
appear to return an object which can be used to refer to the ongoing
session.

If it did, then having an abort method on it would seem perfect! Existing
code that didn't understand the object should continue to just work.

This would also be a great object on which to addEventListener() for
progress events... [2]
