Now, I have been working on the attachment-issue for some time.

Please take a look at my demosite of a patched coWiki 0.4.0-interim
(September 23 2005) <http://www.cowiki.org/>which implements uploading
of attachments and images and also embedding of images and pdf-previews.

The syntax for embedding images are compatible with MediaWikis.
