Rename upload before they appear as attachments


I want to add a timestamp to the filename of uploaded attachments so that each new upload is a new attachment and not a new version if the filename already exists. I managed to implement a servlet filter that performs the required action for drag and drop upload, but I don't know how to handle uploads through the upload panel?

Is it possible to change the name in the multipart request during upload?

Or can I hook in some handler that renames every new upload before it apears as an attachment? 

Or can I write a custom upload handle?
