Well, i took a rather lamish way myself.

I Created one I called 'Meeting Announcement'

I copied Document.py to MeetingAnnouncement.py, copied newsitem.gif to
meetingannouncement.gif, document.dtml to meetinganouncement.dtml. The I
modified the dtml, change all references in Document.py  ( NewsItem
->MeetingAnnoucement , News Item -> Meeting Announcement, nesitem ->
meetingannoucement), then created the wizard.

So basically, you could follow the same pattern, and an image attribute,
reference the image in the dtml, and make sure to include an upload
phase in the wizard.

Well, that should give you some ideas. :)

In flying I have learned that carelessness and overconfidence are 
usually far more dangerous than deliberately accepted risks.
