This got me thinking - the upload code should make sure that no file 
named .htaccess is ever uploaded. Actually it's probably best to avoid 
filenames that start with a dot in the first place. (Not sure whether 
that's actually an issue with HTTP POST, it's been quite a while since I 
dabbled with uploads.)
