Aye, I was thinking the same. I'll code this up soonish.

To me, that looks a little too far from the PmWiki norm, as well as a
departure from the templatability of pagelists: you can only list
multiple files based on the filename, and you can't easily define how
you separate the files from each other. Instead, I'd rather work at
extending pagelists to handle attachments as well.
