  I agree with your intent, but the patches need work.  For one thing, 
your default location would make all attachments accesable by direct URL 
unless you add support to generate .htaccess files.

  Doing this probably wants to be connected to removing the 16MB limit.  
That means that you probably don't want to read the attachment into 
arrays but should handle uploads and downloads more on the fly.  I'd 
also suggest having the ability to set an obsolescence policy so that 
large attachments don't have to be retained forever.
