How does this look? It occurred to me that having a global
`org-export-directory' option would be a good thing -- it makes sense to
me that a user might want all their exported files put in one place --
but in the interest of one-thing-at-a-time I didn't do that.

This additional property doesn't actually have anything to do with
org-attach. I'd originally thought that, with this option, I could write
an export filter that would check for:


and replace it to point at whatever the attach dir was/should be for
that heading.

If that's something that many users would like to have, we could look at
adding it in org-attach.el. But in the meantime, the attached patch
makes it possible to do it yourself.
