They went all Microsoft then and started implementing things prior to

AJAX would be neat for this but again, can't do it in just a plain old browser.

Correct. and it doesn't have the bells and whistles previously mentioned:
- multiple file upload
- progress bar
- retransmission on timeout, failure, etc.
It would be great if even single files could be re-transmitted, etc. I
am sure I could get buyoff from people if we had a fully non-applet
required method for this. But we don't right now. It still requires
Java, Flash, or some other thick client crap.
