What are you thinking about for upload?  Upload a zip file?  Some more 
RESTy interface?  A REST interface quickly turns into WebDAV, which is 
also kind of annoying to work with.  Does uploading new files implicitly 
remove all old files, or add to them?  Would something like rsync be 
possible to make it more efficient?  Probably automated tools will 
appear nearly instantly (I'd probably use the form about once before 
writing a tool), so something like an API is called for.
