01424: attachlist more like pagelist or attachment option to pagelist
Description: Would like to be able to use something like pagelist templates on attachments.
The reason I suggest an option of pagelist is because attachments make sense in the context of pages, and it might be easier to implement there.
Obviously if this were to be implemented, the need for attachlist and/or other recipes dealing with the list of attachments would likely no longer be needed.

More thinking out loud. Maybe a more generic "lister" that could be used to handle various "types" and thus
(:pagelist:) (:attachlist:) would be built using it (??). Types could be pages, attachments, PTVs, categories, etc. (noting not sure about all the types or if it's even worthwhile).

Yes, this feature would be a big step forward for using PmWiki as a CMS! In combination with PTVs and "Fox" forms, you could elegantly select e.g. images for certain positions on a page, e.g. already existing thumbnails.
