Wonderful! I will start reading today! :)

Have you coded anything in regards to this so far?

Right now we're actually considering revising the features for 0.1 to 
only support only "managed media", the higher level system of file(s) 
and metadata. I'm just thinking about the scope of the project and that 
there are better tools for remote file systems. An arbitrary file could 
of course be uploaded using something like a "Object" managed resource, 
but that's not what the typical use case would be like. What do you 
think about this?

Warm regards,
