Perhaps you should create a new utility that writes build directives
and works both interactively and non-interactively, depending on the
command line options? If it is able to write both directives and
attachment headers, whatnow can use it for a *really* versatile way to
attach stuff, and it could also be used from many UNIX editors with
a shell.
