Aha. I wondered if I was missing something.

Last night, I had coded this. Then I decided I really ought to use the=20
plugin-form api since it was there. Good job I only commented out my ear=
code, rather than deleting it then!
What I had in mind was:
data posted to plugin : plugin uploads file
plugin called as form (eg with ?show=3Dform or something like that): plu=
shows form, allowing file to be chosen for upload
plugin called in any other way: plugin displays list of attachments on t=
(or another specified) page.
