Why not look at curl (see --form) and decide, if it is the optimum or if there 
is a better way for the user to specify what he wants to upload.
And then implement the best option syntax.

This is a different problem and could be solved by extending the -e option:
a leading special character could say, the following characters are a filename. 
Then parse that file for 'commands' (aka options).
