[wp-hackers] Missing upload filter and api calls to api.wordpress.org

Hi guys,

I've been following the mailing list for a while, but this is my first 
post. I've been searching far and wide, with no results yet, so I hope 
that you will be able to help me out.

I've been looking for a hook to rewrite filenames (both paths and urls) 
on uploaded files. I've been using wp_handle_upload_prefilter with 
success, but it has no effect on uploads done with XMLRPC. I haven't 
been able to find any way to do this yet.

Another thing I've struggled with is stopping the version checks 
WordPress sends when a user logs in to admin. I'm using 
DISALLOW_FILE_MODS as I do not wish any users start those updates 
themselves, and thus I do not need to check for new versions. I feel 
that WordPress should know not to do that, but it does not seem to care 
that updating is disabled. Is there any other way to disable the calls 
to api.wordpress.org, without placing: " api.wordpress.org" in 
the /etc/hosts file on the server?

Have a nice day!

Best Regards

Gustav Olsen
