It's hard enough to implement that it's not likely to happen soon.

It's a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem.  Because we want wikistyles
to be able to affect images (e.g., %width=50% Attach:foo.gif),
the wikistyle markup ought to be processed after the Attach: markup.
But this messes things up for something like

    %list list-style=url(Attach:pdf.png)%

because in this case we want the Attach:pdf.png to be replaced
with a plain url and not an HTML <img .../> tag.  But in order
to do that we have to somehow prevent the normal Attach: markup
from doing its thing.

There's lots of approaches that we could take to do something like
this, but frankly it hasn't been a highly-demanded option so 
the reward/effort ratio isn't all that high at the moment.
