Rails big pain - uploads and plugin versioning

First of all, congratulations, for rails 2.0 !.
I just want to ask two short questions:

1. Any plans to improve file uploads ? (now single upload block my
entire mongrel process) Or any alternatives ?
2. What about plugin versioning ? Now we have rails 2.0, it would be
reasonable to do plugin versioning like i.e. does for its extensions
so every plugin applies only to a specific version(s) of application.

not something I've ever used

2. What about plugin versioning ? Now we have rails 2.0, it would be

I believe the long term future here lies in gems (ie plugins that are gems). gems already have versions, locking to specific versions/ranges etc... so it makes sense to leverage this rather than rewrite it.

Also note that all plugins coming off SVN repositories implicitly has
version numbers. And if you're using something like Piston to manage
your SVN externals, it's really easy to tie yourself to a given SVN
version.

That being said, I'm not necessarily against a more formal scheme. I
just haven't felt much, if any, pain from the current setup.
