It would certainly be easier, but I don't believe it's the Right Way To 
Do It. Conceptually, the upload code should simply get the 'dirty' 
elements from P2's internal storage, and upload them. I don't like to 
put any additional logic into the upload code.

Further discussion of this point probably belongs on potlatch-dev at . :)
