It was already done, if not several times, then once at least....Particle of Tribes RPG (PCRPG server) made one for his RPG mod. You use a launcher program to run tribes and it checks for content updates before launching, then downloads and installs the new files. You can't upload to it, it's run only by him, which is certainly safer than allowing just anyone to upload.

If you need to allow user uploads, you'd be best off with letting people pick specific files to download from a list of uploads. If you see a file from someone you don't trust, just don't download it.
