i found an un-answering posting from a long-long-long-time:
I wish to start a text file dump for my blog, and I was hoping that there was some kind of plugin that can handle it. What I hope to do with it something like this, eg.
A registered user, adds to the file dump, by selecting the .txt file they want to upload. They also select where it sits in the hierarchy. (eg. Stories > Fiction > Sci-fi). They also give it a brief description.
The plugin creates a new page for that .txt file, with the download link and description. It also adds it to the page hierarchy, so that it is easily browsable.
Any registered user can rate the txt file.
