You know, I think this could be very useful, so I have implemented it. Along with an idea I wanted to have in myself: Using the same directory to an entire subtree, so that a project may use a single attachment directory. If you get the new git version, `C-c C-a s' will allow to select a directory of your choice. And `C-c C-a i' will mark an entry as a parent whose children will inherit the attachment directory.

And there is as far as know no equivalent for this under Windows. - Carsten
