What does the file manager need before rolling out?

Hi all!

I've just had a quick chat with [staff profile] mark following yet another support request about a GUI for the photo hosting system which does actually exist but is pretty bare-bones and currently undocumented.

Mark is comfortable that with a few UI tweaks it could be added to the main menu (Organize --> Manage files, or similar) in order to be discoverable.

The big thing is "have the HTML for embedding an image provided anywhere other than immediately after uploading it". At this stage adding more features/functionality is not on the cards (unless you're volunteering!), but in the spirit of doing a relatively quick UI polish, is there anything else you'd like to see?

I'll be filing an issue in a week's time, and hopefully we can get UI tweaks out in the next code push...

One thing I just noticed is that if you've never uploaded anything, visiting /file/edit just says "Here are all the files you've uploaded from mobile." followed by blank space. It ought to say something like "You haven't uploaded anything" with a link to /file/new.

Edit: maybe also ditch the "from mobile" part now that's we're supporting uploads via the web site and not just via email.
