[Catalyst] size of the uploaded file

Just FYI, with flash 9 (or was it 10?), Adobe changed the way security on the
file upload functionality worked.  It must now be invoked via a flash UI
element (i.e. a button push).  Quite annoying.

You can make Flash uploaders accessible, at least in the case of  
screen readers that plug into a sighted browser (which I'm guessing is  
the case you're thinking of). Basically you have a piece of Javascript  
that calls into a non-visual SWF, you can keep your page regular,  
pretty much as if you were relying on a browser built-in function. You  
might even be able to use an ARIA role for it, though I'm not entirely  
sure which one.
