Yes, we simply must have a regular file dialog available, because drag/drop
is just not sufficiently reliable on all systems.
The approach that seems simplest to me is similar to GMail's attachment
link - a regular link unhides the actual builtin upload-file button. It's
two clicks to upload instead of one, but it lets the mismatched UI be drawn
only when needed, which seems acceptable.
