Objects with file fields, edited inline, throws validation errors on edit

This is similar to #26.
I have an object with multiple related file attachments, each represented by a related object that i'm editing inline (tabular).
When I edit the parent object, it displays the current value of the file field as a link above the file input.
If I save the parent object, the empty file fields (labeled Change:) throw "This field is required" errors, even though the field has a current value.
It seems that validation on file fields should check both for input (and replace if it exists) and for an existing value.
