A few years back I used signed scripts in Netscape Communicator to allow for
drag/drop uploads of files and folders. It worked great, but it took me
months to get it to work because of a <insert extreme curse> bug in how the
browser handled signed scripts. (This is when I began to hate Netscape. The
sad part is that the company I worked for had done quite of bit of dev. work
for Netscape, and even that didn't help us find support.)

Anyway, the point is, if your running this on an intranet with one
particular type of client, you may want to look into signed scripts. I
believe IE has a way of doing stuff like that as well.
