[pmwiki-users] Upload form - file naming / default

The default upload form allows browsing for a local file and assignment of a name for the file as it will be stored on the wiki.  Our problem is that there are a lot of naïve users who put something that becomes problematic in terms of losing the original file name and extension (e.g., someone taking a file that started out as "eye_diagram.jpg" storing it as "diagram"), which then creates problems for other users trying to download the file.  Is there any way to pre-fill the "server name" slot with the original filename (absent the path, obviously) as a default?  [A bonus would be the =option= to force the filename to be used.] That would reduce confusion and demands for file deletion / renaming enormously.  Thanks!
