I'm pretty sure that what Mark describes is how we expect it to work - when
you upload a file, the server doesn't know where in your filesystem that
data is coming from, so it can't switch to that directory and use the
original notebook there, which I think is what Mark wants. The disconnect
is that the UI implicitly encourages uploading, although that doesn't
really make sense when you're running the server as a local application.
