Do you care about overwrites?  Does this prevent overwrites?  Can
anonymous download a "known" filename?  Can I delete a "known" file
(i.e. one that was just uploaded)?

If you prevent overwrites, then someone who REALLY wanted to could
compile a list of "failures" and download/delete them (or just have a
list of what's there, which is what you said you didn't want).

Can Anonymous mkdir?  Would that directory be readable?

I'm curious as to why you want to do this, but I understand if you don't
feel like saying...
