Add filesize/filetype upload limit configuration options

We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
Add a configuration option for Journal Managers to limit the upload filesize and filetypes for non-authorized users, eg. Authors and Reviewers. The configuration option should appear in Journal Setup Step 3, possibly in 3.1, and should encompass the following:
-- allow submission files to be limited by extension (eg. doc, wpd, odt, png, etc.)
-- allow submission files to be limited by size (eg. max size: 10MB)
-- show the relevant PHP/server max upload filesize directive values, so that the JM knows they aren't setting a value that's higher than what the server allows
-- disable the checks if values are left empty
On submission, the following information should be displayed, if configured, and of course checked against:
-- permitted file types
-- maximum file size
This should apply to submission files; supplementary files; and possibly editorial/review files (although not so important there).
Should this be considered an option still? Does plupload (or whatever upload option we continue to go forward with) allow for this kind of functionality?
