i've never used it either.  partly it's because i didn't know readline
was available at whatnow, but mainly it's because attach removes
attachment from the flow of composition -- i have to remember to
attach _after_ i've written out my draft, which to me is the "ready to
send" point.  i forget to include the attachment often enough as it
is -- i much prefer adding an attachment while still editing, which i
can do with directives.  oh, and the previously mentioned issue with
bad mime types when attaching mail messages.

i do understand the attraction of the symplicity of attach, though.
