Create Documents in a Single Transaction

Use a single FrontPage RPC put to upload content and set metadata.
Default behavior uploads content then sets metadata. The two-step approach may cause issues with event handlers, workflow, or versioning.
This setting affects only the initial upload of content, not content changes.
