    Image Storage when using Camera.choose_picture

    Steve Gardner

      If you use the choose_picture method of the Camera APi, you are able to open an image from the gallery.  This doesn't give you a path to the image itself (I'm guessing for sandboxing reasons), but creates a copy of the image in the /public/db-files folder and gives you a path to that.  The documentation makes no mention of whether Rhodes/RhoElements manages these files and deletes them when they are finished with,  or whether the implementer needs to take care of this.  In my scenario a user might import dozens of images every day, so some managment of the images in this folder will be necessary.  Do I need to do the cleanup myself, or is there any handling for automatic cleanup of images created through choose picture?
