[Greasemonkey] Local file system access

Hello list,

I have a question: would it be hard to engineer some way for  
Greasemonkey to allow a user to selectively grant user scripts access  
to their local file system? This has so far been cited as a  security  
bug (which I'm not disputing) and I know there are far more important  
things on Aaron's plate, but I'd venture that the usability of the in- 
browser file upload process could be improved. Just a thought.

Thanks,
-Dan
