Wow, we have way, way, way more than this. We still have IE 6 workarounds (like that stupid 'javascript:false' iframe).

We could probably get rid of a lot of it by switching to use mw.Upload...though every time I think I'll try to accomplish that, it's a huge mistake and waste of time

This should be relatively fast, and not cause any issues...I believe UW removed support for <IE9 some time ago.
