The simplest thing is to use a networked filesystem -- NFS, SMB, etc.

Failing that, you can write a custom FileRepo implementation which
implements an alternate file storage backend, and hope it actually works
with the current state of the code. :)

You could do a custom extension for this which would be simpler than
fully integrating a non-filesystem backend into the wiki's uploads system...
