Thinking about it more, new feature in org-attach menu should actually
be ok.

My initial logic was that we cannot easily select attach method for
entries in the attach menu. However, anything other than 'cp method is
meaningless when saving article attachments.

I think that a good example implementation is from notmuch.el. It does
not use anything specific to notmuch, just built-in mm-*.el from gnus:

(defun notmuch-save-attachments (mm-handle &optional queryp)
   (lambda (p)
     (let ((disposition (mm-handle-disposition p)))
       (and (listp disposition)
	    (or (equal (car disposition) "attachment")
		(and (equal (car disposition) "inline")
		     (assq 'filename disposition)))
	    (or (not queryp)
		 (concat "Save '" (cdr (assq 'filename disposition)) "' ")))
	    (mm-save-part p))))

(defun notmuch-foreach-mime-part (function mm-handle)
  (cond ((stringp (car mm-handle))
	 (dolist (part (cdr mm-handle))
	   (notmuch-foreach-mime-part function part)))
	((bufferp (car mm-handle))
	 (funcall function mm-handle))
	(t (dolist (part mm-handle)
	     (notmuch-foreach-mime-part function part)))))
