Only because I don't currently have the time to really write one of
these beasts. If someone else wants to write one, or wants to pay me
to write one, or wants to adapt an existing GPL-compatible one for
use with PmWiki, I'm all for it. :)

I think it may be possible to put text at the current cursor-position,
although I don't know how widely this is supported in various browsers.
If I can't do it at the current cursor position, I'd just prefer the
Attach-link to be cut-n-paste instead.
But, most of this is relatively low priority for me at the moment, the
current system seems to work "well enough" for most people. If it needs
higher priority, it needs to be entered/discussed in PITS (and people
can vote on its priority there).
