We could set-up an activity email for uploads. For now, I could add this
to this list, but it might get out of control...maybe for now that is
good. Basically, we need to code an admin notification system that hooks
into various hooks and we can get info back from ccHost about this via
email...this is actually quite easy to do and could get out of control
how much info we could harvest...could you file this as a request
against cchost: http://sf.net/projects/cctools
I will get to this one fast...
