Well, a jQuery-based HTML5 uploader would be cool, without doubt. Right now, the technology is not widely enough supported, but this will change sooner or later (probably sooner). Ideally, it should support the new drag & drop feature as well, but this only works in Firefox and Chrome at the moment.

As for Flash... well, I'm not the biggest fan of flash, though it is a solid base for things like a file uploader. In fact, I've already been playing with a flash uploader ripped from WordPress and it wasn't too hard to integrate it into SMF. This was back a year, when I was still running my old SMF 2.0beta forum here and the code did not make it into current EoS

Every program has at least one bug and can be shortened by at least one instruction -- from which, by induction, one can deduce that every program can be reduced to a single instruction that doesn't work.
