I've checked into CVS a version of upload_svg.cgi that gives a
somewhat friendlier error message to users coming from the front page
(or, for that matter, anyone who neglects to specify the filetype).
It also softens a bit the wording on the main error message.

It's not live on the site yet, until someone runs the publish script,
so if anyone wants to check over the wording on the messages, this
would be a good time.  The message you get if you don't specify the
filetype is on lines 122-130, and the message you get otherwise is on
lines 136-140.

I did run a basic test to catch syntax errors and the like on my home

split//,"ten.thgirb\@badanoj$/ --";$\=$ ;-> ();print$/
