Hmm, ok well perhaps we could get Victor's advice on this one. It might
be something he could fix fairly easily. But if nothing else, what
you've done so far with the header looks acceptable at least in firefox,
so wouldn't be a showstopper if we couldn't find a PHP person to do some
refactoring on it right away.

Ah, is the breakage of the search simply due to styling? If that's the
case, then yeah I agree; let's just move it to a better location.

Right, this is the #1 issue. I spent some time looking into it last
night and sorting out how file types work. Thankfully with the advice
and help from Victor and James I think I can get it going. It might
take longer for things like .svgz and tarballs and so on, but those will
all build on the core .svg functionality.
Soo... Assuming the .svg upload works, the next thing would be ensuring
there are mechanisms for downloading and browsing the whole collection,
like what we have now. I haven't investigated those capabilities at
all, but am assuming it either works or would be straightforward to
implement, so it'd be great if someone could look into this.
