[drupal-devel] inline checkbox for attachements

Hi there, 

I am about to propose a solution to a client of mine for the attachments. She 
thinks the current system is **** horrible (well, in fact she said much more, 
but that is not poilite over the mailinglist)

Amoungst the various options of additional modules (inline, img assist etc) I 
want to propose the Simple Solution too. Which would be another column in the 
attchements table for "inline". That would then call a theme function that 
gets a $node pointer passed along. y default all it will do is append image 
tags (if it is an image) or link tags, if it is a file to the article. That 
would be at filter time, so one will not see the HTML. 

I am:
* Looking around first to find out how much chance that this makes it into 
core, since I will not "sell" a hacked core to this client. We have no proper 
hook to change that table, so maybe a third solution would be to introduce 
* Looking for additional ideas, on how to enlarge the chance this gets in 
* Thinking of how this will conflict with modules such as inline module.
