The desire is to have file drag and drop support (like in gmail) in the resources tool in Sakai. Ideally supporting multiple files.
My quick assessment is that the approach seems OK and modular enough
to backport when people want to. I think multiple file upload would be
a real leap forward if that's possible.
We might want to consider a property to enable or disable it but
that's only if there are cases where it might not work (like certain
browsers or file types).
It also looks like this does its own zip file handling. That should
probably be removed.

The patch is attached. What is still needed is an ability to do more
than one file at once, and probably a switch to turn this feature off.
I think those are pretty quick things to work out. I'd like to
understand more how this is related to other projects in the works.
To turn this feature on include:
