My main need for now is:

   1. WebDav Server
   2. Ability to create login's (user/pass) that default to a specific
   3. Ability to create sub-directories (one per user)
   4. A cron job to detect newly uploaded files and parse them to get
   manifest information. (I'll write the cron job, just need permissions to
   set them up)

At some point in the future I realize it would be good to build this on a
free framework, so it could be installed on school servers.  At this point
I think I will stick with App Engine and then once I have that working look
to porting something to another framework. I guess not Django, although I
am curious as to why not.
