One possibility might be to change (:rotate:) to use a page
divided into sections (a la BreakPage or SectionEdit), where each
section is one element of the rotation.
(And yes, I'm looking at integrating a version of section edits
into the core.)

Perhaps, although it seems to me that most times there are likely to
be things in an upload directory that wouldn't belong in a rotation,
so we end up having to have a list anyway.

Awwww, "rotation" can be pretty darn simple too! I just do the
rotation based on wall clock time... :-)
$RotateMarkupFreq = 10; # change every ten seconds
$r = array("things", "to", "be", "rotated");
$i = (time() / $RotateMarkupFreq) % count($r);
