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.

Thanks for pushing this.

`C-c C-a l' does not make symbolic links, it makes hard links.
And there is as far as know no equivalent for this under Windows.
