Re: [Gnump3d-users] Suggestion: Make it possible to delete files from in

I would imagine that it would require a greater level of access
control to be able to specify what users have rights to upload,
delete, rename, move, or otherwise access any sort of "gnump3d file

It sounds like a good idea on paper, but I think the level of security
controls that would be needed to add would make it less attractive an
option and difficult to simply and securely impliment.

On a side note, one thing I would like to see is support for album
art, Folder.jpg, AlbumArt.jpg, embedded ID3v2 covers, etc.
