Might this be something we could use scipy-central for? I don't know
anything about that server setup / file attachment situation. Just an
idea. Still not zero effort.

We might also consider setting up using projects.scipy.org to allow
scp of files, though I wouldn't want to volunteer anyone to be the ssh
key gatekeeper (I guess it should be keymaster) and you still have to
copy the link over.
