WUI: the Upload results page should have both view and download links

Launchpad Bug:


The Download link on the WUI results page causes a browser to download the file rather than view it. This is fine, but there should also be a view link.

I like the idea, but I'm not sure how to accomplish it.

Immutable uploads don't include metadata about the file type, not even a filename whose extension provides a hint. Therefore we can't really tell the browser what to do with the file other than download it as type "application/octet-stream".

Perhaps the immutable upload could accept a filename as well and construct a url of the form /file/$IMMCAP/@@named=/$FILENAME.

See also #827, #277, and #307.
