Summary:
Show max file size when doing a file release over the web

Detailed description
File releases can be done using FTP or over the web.

When doing a file release over the web, there is some size limit regarding the file being uploaded.
This is probably some weird combination of php.ini file settings, I think it is post_max_size and upload_max_filesize. These settings can be read using php function ini_get().

If the user exceeds that implicit filesize, he is confronted with a 500 error page or even worse, a blank page. This is not a very nice user experience. It would be nice if the max filesize would be displayed read-only above or below the file release file upload form so the user can at least judge himself whether the file he wants to upload is too big or not.

This has already been implemented recently in branch 5.1 & trunk.
