It should be interesting to apply this method for creating a component which allow to upload and assign images to every section, category and content and a simple module for showing the associated image.
I have been developing static and dynamic websites for several years now and only recently came across Mambo. Nevertheless an excellent CMS I was shocked not to find an add on to allow full image customisation with the admin section page by page. As a designer you donít want all the pages to look exactly the same for each website - the header image is very important. At least this add on by Thomas is heading the right direction.
So if there are any developers out there - I think you could safely charge around $10/20 for a decent template changer - as in per page per graphic - maybe several graphics or SWF files. I would personally like to see placeholders one defines in the admin that way you would name the images and hook them up with each placeholder name. Any takers?
