Looking good, Bhaskar :)

With the multi-platform plugins, can you allow 'unlimited' files to be
uploaded, eg, I may have 4 .so's to upload for Linux (x86, x64, ppc, arm),
a .deb and .rpm, as well as some platform-nonspecific protocol images.
Yes, having OSX support would be good, but it'd also be good to not be
limited to a fixed list of OS's, eg if I wanted to upload files for *BSD or
for 'Other' OS's such as Amiga (Hey, Wikipedia says Pidgin runs on it!)

Looking forward to seeing what comes next! :)
