Hi Guy,

20 megs (currently unconfigurable)

Not yet. Not clear how it would be. Portfolio's belong to a user, not
a course, so individual courses wouldn't have control over this
feature. Could make it a domain wide option though... perhaps a
'disable it domain wide by default' and a course can say "i need it"
and then the user can acquires a portfoilio space.

But they would then have access to it any time ...

No. By design. We want to allow users to open access to individul
files but want to avoid making it an easy way to ditribute MP3s.
