Multiple "files"

I’m creating a theme – I’d like the homepage to be a user-modifiable slideshow of images. It seems that if I allow multiple images to be uploaded via the theme-config, that’d do the trick.

Is this possible? In my config.iniI have

slide.type = "file"

but this only allows one file, regardless of what the


reads. (What’s the point of validators.count.options.max?)

Where can I hack to get (an indeterminate number of) multiple files working?
