Here's an idea that would have to be included in php itself, but it would prove useful. The option to select a temp dir and filename that is diffrent than the one in php.ini. One could use a timestamp and user ID as a temp file name and track it's size in a new window to create a progress bar for the upload. any comments?

A cheap and painless way of achieving this would be to make use of the temporary file name prefix (pfx parameter to mkstemp etc.) It is currently HARD-CODED in rfc1867.c to "php".    It could just as easily be picked up from the POST. 

This would make an upload progress bar in pure php a trivial exercise i.e.

1. Generate a unique prefix e.g. timestamp/user id.
2. Pass it to a popup progress indicator immediate prior to
3. Include it as a variable on the post e.g. in UPLOAD_PREFIX
4. Get the popup search to for files with the specified prefix in the temporary directory and display their file size. Refresh until no files left.

In particular this can be easily retro-fitted to any existing uploads since no code needs changing in the form target.

I'm not sure that this is possible. I think it is changeable in the ini because of technical reasons. Is there still interest in this?
