I think this would be super!

You mentioned that people will feel like they "have" to upload files and I
agree.  I also think it is ripe for abuse.  While I at first thought separate
files would be good, I'm rethinking it.  Maybe if people realize that huge
directories are difficult to manage, they will self-impose limits.  One
directory would work in admins' favors here.  Also, would that make the disk
space totals easier?  I'd take a single directory, warning system and lock
with delete/'pages affected listing' if I could order it. :)

Ignore that doddering fool!

An alphabetized list, I think I meant to say, would be useful for a delete
function but not for lists.
