I think this was a wrong suggestion.
Uploads through url don't work, because for very valid security

I will add uploads capability to Fox, it is fairly simple.
I have to decide still how to integrate it into Fox's multi-target
model, and how to handle the security.
I probably implement uploads for one target page only, for a start.
So Fox can upload via using the file input control, and post content
etc at the same form submission.
For security i can either leave uploads to be protected via standard
'upload' permission, i.e. one needs upload permission in order to
upload, or I add a new $FoxUploadAuth variable, set by default to
'uploads'. Quite certainly the $FoxAuth setting should not govern
upload permission as well.
In addition 'upload' can become a pege permission, like 'add',
'delete', 'replace' etc., so an upload target page needs to have
a permission set via FoxConfig or $FoxPagePermissions.

Any ideas or feedback on this?
