This looks very promising!

It also solves an additional dilemma I discovered:

Using fox.php I can now upload files and post page content in one
submission. And the upload target page can be specified, as one may
want a file to be attached to a new page one is creating with the
form. With the existing definition of $UploadPrefixFmt I can set it
conditionally different for a group, but this group relates to the
current page and not necessarily to the upload target page I wish the
file to be attached to.

Having an array of special UploadPrefix groups or pages the upload
function can check if the target page is a key in this array, and set the
prefix accordingly to the array value.

I like to be able to upload/attach files to pages other than the
current page (which may just be an upload form page), so having a
means to check if the target needs a special upload prefix is
