Yeah. It'd be really nice to have. There is an UploadFileToMaster (or 
similarly named) step that at least allows file transfer.

But having something better, a small DB and some more info than just a 
bunch of files on the master, would be nice.

The problem is, what should it look like and what are the prime use 
cases that warrant something more than just files in a directory?
