Hmm, good point.  I was thinking that the form could specify a file path
such as:

filepath=/pub/fedora/linux/releases/%(rel)s/Fedora/$(arch)s/iso/F-$(rel)s-$(arch)-DVD.iso

And the script would substitute the proper values based on the rel/arch
parameters.  For sets of media, the filepath would go to the directory
containing all of the images.  

I'm mostly unsure about how spins/the get-fedora page will work (and if
the directory structures/spin names will remain consistent between
releases), so depending on these factors, it might or might not be
useful.  

Thanks,
Ricky
