The fix I suggested has nothing to do with [[Attachlist:]], that was only
for allowing the filename to contain spaces. But as I think about it
again, it seems that the solution isn't very good. How should this markup
Attach:A file with spaces.txt does it end now?
Does that refer to a file called 'A file with spaces.txt' or to a file
called 'A file with spaces.txt does it end now'...
One possible solution could be to augment the syntax as follows:
Attach:"A file with spaces.txt"
which would work for any filename that doesn't contain quotes (").
(Using [[Attach:A file with spaces.txt]] won't work since that'll be
rendered as a  or something).

I have no idea... if you point me to an example I could have a closer look
at the problem.
