OK. When we finalise the exact text of the upload rules I suppose tar.bz2 
and zip is enough to accommodate everybody.

True. I'll see what I can come up with to have the accompanying images (if 
any) stored without additional compression/archiving. As for the (re)naming 
of the files, do you want them to be right next to the issue's mediafile 
they belong to or do you want them archived as an image?

fubar.png	-->	ff_12345+image+png+++fubar.png

The problem with the first option is that a png image will get archived 
under avi container, mpeg4 video, etc... The problem with the second option 
is that the files are only next to eachother under issue/ and if there's 
not issue/bug number attached, it won't be obvious which image belongs to 
which mediafile. That could be fixed though if we start numbering 
non-roundup/bugzilla files too.
