Sort of related...

I've been working on a new version of (:attachlist:) and I'm starting to 
feel pleased about it. It basically lets you write something like this:

 	(:attachlist prefix:path :)

and returns a listing from the corresponding *local* place. Right now the 
admin has to specify the local path as an entry in a global array, but 
it'd be much nicer if this could instead be specified via Site.InterMap.
For instance, what if we could write something like this in Site.InterMap

 	prefix:	http://you.org/uploads	/srv/www/uploads

or perhaps

 	prefix:	http://you.org/uploads	localpath=/srv/www/uploads

The local path option should then be available through some global array.

You can check it out here:
 	http://wiki.lyx.org/TestList/TestList	- the general directive
 	http://wiki.lyx.org/TestList/TestPrefix	- the prefix-version


PS. I'm aware that some security has to be added here. Arbitrary local 
paths shouldn't be allowed for instance. And even the use of local paths 
should be disabled by default.

PPS. I have a feeling the development of this new directive is going to be 
quite iterative for a while, so I'd prefer to be able to work with it via 
some kind of version control system. Do you have any ideas on this?
Would you for instance consider hosting a separate repository at 
pmwiki.org for cookbook repositories, or should I set up one somewhere 
else myself?
