A feature request: file attachments

As I approach a point where I handle nearly all of 
my transactions online these days, and spend time 
on every purchase saving a pdf receipt or invoice 
documenting the exchange . . . 

I was thinking last night that I would love it if 
(particularly AP transaction and client) objects might 
be related to file uploads.  I would like to see 
our pdf invoices we're paying be attached to the 
AP transaction which documents its payment.  

Perhaps a bank statement could be attached to a 
reconciliation; a contract or customer agreement 
could be attached to a customer record; an invoice 
to an AP transaction.  There are certainly other 
uses for this.

I've heard from the folks at RT that loading a pg 
database with excessive attachments leads to a 
significant performance hit.  Perhaps these 
attachments could be stored in the file system instead.

Does anyone else think it would be useful to drill 
down through the reports in LSMB and find the 
original invoices?
