Not more than 48 hours after the launch of version 2.7, that myself and DD32 have already started on ideas on how to upgrade the current attachment and media system for WordPress. He has sent me his version of what I was trying to do by hacking the base code really far to make it work. Since I got his code just today, I will be started to work on it with the new 2.8.x bleeding trunk that now has started.
Just a reminder that this will be no where in the 2.7.x code, but only in the 2.8.x code unless it becomes really stable during development and testing.
