Hmm, it should be easy: action=edit&title=User:Pchang/Files%20

The main problem is when to consider an upload-to-be abandoned. How long
will it take the user to upload it from home? A couple of days? A week?
A month?
It doesn't seem unlikely that a user waits up to a month to upload his
vacation photos (to begin with he may need to go back home from the
country he is visiting, and then he will have more priority issues than
uploading to Commons). But leaving a placeholder file for a month seems
too much IMHO.
