Subject:        Posting files through the shindig makeRequest proxy

It looks like shindig has a pretty significant issue here in that posting 
file attachments through the proxy does not seem possible.

>From what I've read online, passing a form element to a native xhr in FF 
and chrome will create a multipart mime post for you to the target.  In IE 

you have to use a flash plugin or something.
I think even supporting FF and Chrome would be an issue though, as we 
treat POST_DATA to the makeRequest call as a string...

and goes through RPC so that seems like it will be 
impossible to ever get to work posting binary data.

Anyone have any ideas, or run into this before?
