I did not write that code, but when adding 23hq.com support, I have also 
noticed that flickr API is a bit strange here. See API documentation:

As you can see, primary_photo_id is required to create new photoset.

I do not know Flickr/Uploadr much, but it may be that it does some maginc in 
the line of following:
1. assign some dummy photo
2. create photoset with dummy photo
3. upload photos
4. assign real photo as primary_photo_id

This needs further investigation by somebody that uses Flickr Pro (I am unable 
to create photosets, as I only have free acocunt).
