Allow structured data to be added via API:Upload
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

UploadWizard uploads structured data via one-at-a-time wikibase API calls after the image itself has been uploaded

A better user experience would be possible if the structured data was uploaded at once along with the image

The image is uploaded via API:Upload. Add processing of structured data to the API call

(and once it's added a ticket can be added to update UploadWizard to use the new functionality)

UploadWizard aside, this functionality would be also useful in particular for users relying on the API to do bulk uploads, since it would allow users to upload a file with structured data attached—in the same way as the unstructured file description is currently included in the same request as the media upload. This would reduce the number of API requests necessary to achieve the task of adding structured data statements for new uploads.
