ephox like applet for browsing/loading images

Hi guys,

I’m about to start a new development and would really appreciate any thoughts or feedback about its feasibility.

Basically users uploading images into RX must be able to browse and upload images from a remote CMS instead of their own desktops while creating new items.

For compatibility reasons I think its better to keep using the standard file input field (sys_file) so I thought about hiding them and instead showing my applet browser to fill them afterwards through an extension during the post-processor phase.

I would not develop a new control like sys_file but an applet that sets an image id that will assist the extension to fill the original field during the post-processor phase.

How does it sound? any feedback would be really appreciated.
Thanks a lot, Javier.
