[wp-hackers] Using Media Library "selector" on user-edit page

Hi Rob,

I think you could simply send an empty post_id to the media-upload script :
tb_show('', 'media-upload.php?type=image&TB_iframe=true*&post_id*');
The warning won't show and you'll still get the functionality.

But maybe is there a better way to call this window, I can't tell.
