Cool, I used the same stuff for another project (bepasty on github).

Yes, whether your change is acceptable for inclusion into 1.9 depends
a lot on the impact it has on existing code / functionality. Also,
some admins or distribution packagers might want to have it optional
and off-by-default.

moin2 is preferable for new features. And IIRC we already have
multi-file-upload there, I don't remember whether it was with that lib
or some other one, though. Try throwing stuff onto the index page of

I think I can give better advice if you just put the stuff on
codereview.appspot.com and add me as a reviewer there.

You're welcome! And we would definitely like you trying moin2 and
hacking it for usability. :)

BTW, in next 1.9 release, there are some minor changes to deal with
(==delete, move) "multiple attachments" already, see repo.

BTW, if you use IRC, join us on #moin-dev on freenode.
