Gremlin: Filelist module should have "New" button
At the moment, the only way to create files or folders in the Filelist module is by clicking the clickmenu.
Most newcomers seem to look for it in the module itself (right frame). Would be cool, if a "new" button could be inserted there.

i uploaded a patch.
there was some strange (bug) behaviour in the html code of the page, that prevented my first <form> button to work.
so i had to add that <form></form>
i guess the problem is that <form> tag in the <body> element..
is it necessary?
i could not build the buttons with the simple <input type="submit" onClick="jump.....">
i could not find any doc about building the right urls, so i went with the classical <form></form> (that i like better because all the param can be well written
last thing: it was the first time i did a .patch using diff.. i hope it's ok!
i hope to get some feedfack so i can begin "hacking" the core :)

Hi Martin.. i thought a bit about it,and i don't think it's so a good idea to put the little icons (like in the list view) just to be UI consistent.
if you see the Page view, we have big "new page""move page" etc buttons...
and in the file module, what someone want to to is really UPLOAD something.
so i think it would be much better to put the two big buttons as with my patch.
maybe we can leave the two little icons, ok that's consistent.
what do you think?
