My thinking with FileSize: was that it could be a recipe that would 
avoid making changes to Attach: . I hate having to enter the filename twice.

My number one choice is still AttachVerbose: which I was hoping could 
be implemented as part of the Attach: markup. So to see the filename 
only, use Attach:, but to see the file size,  use AttachVerbose:.

I mulled over Attach:, AttachS:, and AttachSD: as the naked file 
name, then with size, then with size and date but they are not as 
obvious as AttachVerbose:
