This solution requires a patch to PHP; most hosts will not apply this patch.

After researching this pretty well myself, I would say that there is no 
way for the majority of web servers that are installed with standard 
options to implement a progress bar for upload, either via javascript or 
a server-side method.  There is no magic Ajax that will accomplish this 

However, the original idea of uploading multiple files via javascript 
and an iframe is certainly doable.
