[ic] File upload progress bar

This is somewhat outside of the scope of Interchange. I would like to  
give the user some feedback when they are uploading files as to how  
their upload is progressing. The primary application would be  
uploading spreadsheets used to update databases such as the userdb or  
image uploads.  I would really like to do this without reloading the  
entire page. I think I need Apache/IC to start putting the file down  
on the disk as it is being uploaded so that another process may check  
the file's size as it goes and give feedback to the user (i.e. a  
progress bar).

Anybody do anything like this before and could give me some general  
pointers? I've seen a lot online about doing this using PHP, Perl and  
one of the JS libraries such as prototype.js. All that I have seen  
are a bit too complicated for me. They involve at least a half dozen
