thanks Martin for your reply.

What is the path forward on this one? I am wondering how to proceed:

- is the approach above with a 'upload-requested' signal a good one that 
you would consider of adding as public API or are there other better 
approaches to solve the issue of having a custom file-chooser?

- is this an easy addition for someone familiar with the codebase? Is 
there someone willing to do it or do I have to try and rip my hair out 
and write an ugly patch first? :)

- API additions for webkit vs webkit2?

Thanks a lot in advance for any clarification,
