I already have a patch here (not created a ticket on trac or it yet)  
to stop a user from uploading another file with the same name. Before  
I can go on and implement: upload an archive and only import the files  
that the particular user hasn't uploaded already; I would need to bash  
some implementation ideas from someone who has more knowledge of rails.

The reason why this works, is because generally GPS devices give files  
a unique name based on the day or the start time of the trace.  
Therefore the trace name is generally unique for that particular user.
