[TYPO3] Third try: Print a list of image filenames to the page?

If I use the Files field, then I'm limited to only one set of images 
per page (because a page can only have one Files list, right?)  If I 
did it as a content item I could to multiple.

But I'm so desperate at this point- I'll take that actually.  If you 
can show me how to do it in such a way that I can pull the list of 
files from the parent page's file list (leveluid:-1) that would be 
good enough, I think.

Actually even better- if it could recursively go up the page tree 
until it finds a page with files in it's files list, and generate the 
list of files in that list.  (Check leveluid:-1 then if no files, 
check leveluid:-2.... etc)
