* Set default work format based on file extension if possible -- note that this will probably require extending the ZCML syntax to support a "callable" vocabulary instead of static one so that we can show the appropriate sub-set of file formats for the particular DC type previously selected.
* Include new ID3 tagging support
==== Release ====
* Adapt file item to file object in pyarchive submission process.
* Implement an extension to set proxy settings
* Extension preferences need some additional structure
* The resources folder should really be moved under the ccpublisher folder (but this is just a nit)
