I'm still dreaming of a user-selected association with a link syntax
that works for any of them. I.e., the user gets to decide if the upload
is associated with a page, group, or is site-wide and they use the same
syntax to access any of them. Something like [[$Upload:file]] would
cause PmWiki to search for file first as associated to a page, then
group, then "global".
