Can WP not be programmed to make permission issues invisible to the user? What I mean is struggling with permissions when uploading images through the dashboard.
Could it not be programmed to update the permissions on relevant folders before upload, and set them back to what they were after upload? That way, after a fresh install of WP3.0, we wouldn't get errors uploading media, like:
- Missing temporary folder
- Cannot move image to upload/2010/...
Seems like a good idea to me.
