Subject: MediaManager MetaData / form
Is there any plugin to add input fields to the Media Manager to add metadata to the uploaded files for a specific namespace?

I want to attach a string to a file uploaded in a specific namespace. My usecase is uploading PDF documents of standard operating procedures, I want to be able to type in a revision number to keep track of which version of the document is uploaded.

I could just put the revision in the filename, but this doesn't work for uploading new versions of documents. I'd have to remove the old document and upload the new one, then I would have to change the wiki page itself to go to the new filename. If I were able to just put in a metadata string, the file name could always stay the same but I'd be able to tell which revision it is by looking at the metadata.
