Allow a plugin to disable the Flash file uploader

Let's drop a simple filter in so a plugin can disable the Flash file uploader if required.

Some people (including myself) have been having problems with the Flash uploader on shared hosting with strict security. This would be really handy in those scenarios.

+1 Theres going to be times where the flash uploader isnt wanted by a user, Or it just doesnt work due to some unforseen problem. Allowing users to disable the flash component is a good idea in my book.
