I have been waiting to respond to this. Thanks for exposing our rather
painful method of image upload for a product.
I am still not clear on what would be the best method. Stefan has provided
some code that works, I think, but I am still not sure what the behavior
Perhaps a separate "image" page on the items menu would be best,
but I would like to be as customizable as possible, not requiring
hardcoded field names like "image" and "thumb".
I will work on this.
