Your thoughts about using the FTP upload as you describe should work
fine. Unfortunately it is not written so generically, so you'll need to
set an FTP server name in the appropriate option in the config file
despite not having one, which will be displayed in the help text on the
upload form. However, this server name is not verified in any way and
can be any string.
Thanks for the pointer,
