Yes, it is, and yes, you're correct that using $PubDirUrl
as a base seems to make a lot more sense than $ScriptUrl.

That looks pretty reasonable, although I'm not sure about always using
basename() here. I think I want to use basename only if $UploadDir
starts with a slash. OTOH, if someone is changing the location of
$UploadDir anyway then they really ought to be explicitly setting
$UploadUrlFmt at the same time.

I definitely look forward to it. :-)
