Just tested it. Any IC demo will work.

1. Create a directory in your catalog directory, "foo". Make sure it
   is writable by the IC daemon.

2. Go to the Items tab in the admin, and pick any old field. Edit the
   metadata to set widget to uploadhelper, and go to the "Advanced"
   tab and set Directory to "foo".

3. Save the widget, then go to that field in the admin. You should see
   an upload widget.

Now use the widget to upload a file, and you will see that it goes
to the "foo" directory.
