Plan for media storage API?

Plan for media storage API?

Feature request from owenhaynes, posted on GitHub May 31, 2015

Is there any plan for a media stroage api, was looking to see if it was possible to use S3/Cloud Stroage for media assets. So that Elastic Beanstalk can be used effectively.

I don't think storing the images in the database is the correct option when S3 storage is far cheaper and faster to run then a database.

Have had a look at the code and it seems very tightly coupled with File and Database, so creating a plugin seems a lot of work.
