Although this isn't what you had in mind, and until this sort of
functionality gets addressed it does get rid of the need of having to create
a new file every time:

   - Paste the image into the editor
   - Copy the image source location
   - Paste it into the upload text field (the box next to "browse"), and
   hit upload
   - It uploads the image that was in your clipboard.

Functionality that would enable this feature natively would be awesome, but
I have a feeling it wont be happening for a while, but post a ticket to trac
and see what happens :)
