I think we already have this?  You may be interested in looking into
collections support?

I'm not sure what this one means... is it filtering by media type?  (We
don't have that; I would like it though)  Or
maybe something along the lines of tagging?  (We do have this.)

Do you mean something along the lines of "uploading new revisions and
keeping old revisions of files?"  We don't have that; there is some
expressed interest in it, however.

There will likely be a refactor of the way media types work soon.  You
may be interested in reading:

It should be possible, but it will require some changes to MediaGoblin
(which we already want).  At the moment, we use bcrypt to hash
passwords; if you wanted to use the old passwords, we would need to add
support that MediaGoblin could accept different authentication
mechanisms.  I'm interested in this... we have several use cases for it
already.  I would be happy to work closely with you on this one if you
have personal interest in working on it.

Great... not sure if that helps; hopefully so!
