It seems inconsistent that our FilePathField doesn't use abstracted storage unlike pretty much all other file access.

Needs documentation: unset

The FilePathField form field looks coupled to the file system (os.walk(), etc). Maybe it would be enough to try to add a storage agnostic file path form field and allow developers to use it with models.FileField. While models.FilePathField takes path, math, recursive, allow_files, and allow_folders arguments, it's not doing anything with them besides passing them to the form field.

Triage Stage: UnreviewedAccepted

Tentatively accepting, though a design proposal and a description of the use case is needed.
