Uploader 2 designs for 0.6 beta

That sounds like a good idea. I just had another question come to  
mind. Will the new version of uploader remain attached to a server  
back end? This will definitely  help with the testing, and place it in  
a real environment for anyone who wants to check it out. If this is  
the case, it may be helpful if there was a way to delete the uploaded  
files from the server, without having to rebuild the nightly build.

Also for the automated testing to work for uploader, we will likely  
have to extend the java application that is running the robot. I'm not  
sure if we will then call it directly in our code or have to modify  
doh.robot as well. It will require some investigation.
