I think I get it. There’s not enough stuff in the core to associate an upload with a post, especially if it were to be moved around, deleted, whatever…? Something like that? Anyhow, the core would have to be modified to do this?
Hmmm… How about a simple PHP file uploader script, running completely outside, with the upload form presented along with post form? Then, if the uploaded image URL could be displayed, it could be copied and pasted into the post, or into the input box from the Allow Images plugin. Sounds a bit convoluted, but if you really want to let people upload images, would that work? At least, for now…?
