Yes, having a general "upload image" package would be very nice.
However, they all seem to rely on access keys (and the like).  For
instance, imgur.el comes with a token that's connected to my account
(but images are uploaded as "public", so they're not tied to me once
they're uploaded).

And that feels kinda odd for a general package, but might be acceptable
for a specific package.

Ideally the distributed access key would be registered to the FSF or
GNU, but I'm not sure anybody would be interested...
